Use These Storytelling Techniques to Deliver Electrifying Presentations and Speeches
The essence of public speaking is to "tell a story and make a point".
Stories have the power to captivate listeners and to ignite their imaginations. Our brains crave stories - it's how history was recorded before people learned how to write - but what makes a great story? How can you create and deliver stories which keep your listeners transfixed?
Based on Intensive Research on Brain Science, Storytelling, Screenwriting and Public Speaking
I spent the last four years studying and evaluating thousands of speakers - some great ones, and others who (to put it mildly) needed a lot of help. I read over two hundred books on the art of public speaking, storytelling and screenwriting, attended countless seminars on the subject and devoured every piece of information I could get on the art of presenting. This book is the result of my intensive research. In it, you will find powerful storytelling and speaking techniques that are used by some of the world’s best speakers to help win audiences over to their way of thinking.
If you want to master the art of public speaking, you must master the art of storytelling.
In this book, you will discover the public speaking and storytelling techniques used by some of the best public speakers in the world. More specifically, you will learn how to:
•Create an opening that instantly hooks your audience into your speech

What Makes This Book Different?
This book is unlike most books on the subjects of public speaking and storytelling.
While most books simply teach you the techniques, this book also contains four short world-class speeches and stories for you to study and evaluate.
Each speech is followed by a detailed line-by-line analysis of the speech so that you can see the public speaking and storytelling techniques in action.
While the four winning speeches in this book are short, inspirational speeches, the techniques in the book can be applied to create powerful business presentations, keynotes or workshops.
When you apply the techniques in this book, you will become twice the speaker in half the time.
