Tell stories when you speak

Uncategorized
Stories are a part of us As an audience we love to hear about other people.  We love to know their stories and how they got to where they are now. History shows that we learn through story telling.  All those fairy stories, the fables, the legends, they are ways of communicating lessons to us in a way we will remember. Although we live in a very visual world today and people are losing the ability to sit and listen for any length of time, your story is still a powerful way of helping people understand who you are.  It gives you a chance to create a link between you and the audience.
