The Irresistible Power of Strategic Storytelling

The Irresistible Power of Strategic Storytelling

Speaker Kindra Hall
The shift from a transactional economy to a connected one has people scrambling. When surveyed, companies admit they believe a substantial portion of their revenue is under threat as a result. Businesses, brands, sales forces, marketing teams and leaders at all levels are desperately trying to capture attention and resonate with consumers who expect more. Is there a secret weapon? A silver bullet to humanize and connect? Yes. The answer is strategic storytelling. The problem? In its rapid rise in popularity, 'storytelling' has been reduced to in-actionable jargon. Every day businesses and individuals miss critical opportunities to connect with their elusive audiences in powerful and profitable ways because they lack a storytelling skill. Until now. Leave empowered and equipped to close more sales, build better relationships, or blow up their brands by leveraging the irresistible power of their stories.
