Once upon a time there was a brilliant team who wanted to shout about it to management. Yet none of them knew how to make a compelling presentation of their work. They knew exactly what they wanted to say, but they didn’t have the skills to tell the story and they stumbled through their question and answer session, because they were unable to improvise on the spot under question fire.
Does this sound familiar?
Very few people in life are natural born storytellers. Storytelling is the oldest way of passing along information, in which facts can be relayed as powerful statements and where new ideas can blossom. A storyteller must be able to improvise, if they want to connect with their audience and relay their story effectively. Both skills take a lot of practice to master.
