Everything we talk about that is important to us is story-based. The sports teams we care about, local and national politics, and whatever we did last weekend. There may be facts and information beneath, but it is the stories that make it interesting, memorable, and worth paying attention to.
Now take a look at the content you create and the way you describe the work that you do. Poof! If you’re like most professionals, somebody took away all the stories! All that’s left are a bunch of facts, credentials, and assertions about how hard working and qualified you are.
Knowing how and when to weave stories and personal anecdotes into the way you market your business is not something you’re born with. It’s a learned skill. Like playing the piano … or baking a cake … or yelling at children.
In this seminar, Michael Katz will show you how to make your stories more effective, more interesting, and a whole lot easier to produce. Because stories – your stories and the connection they make with prospects, clients, colleagues, and others – are a key to standing out from the crowd and getting hired.
