Story Theater – Strategic Storytelling for Business Presentations

Do your executives, managers, supervisors and team leaders make presentations at company functions? Would you like to help them improve their ability to make a point and gain critical buy-in to new ideas and changes? Strategic storytelling is the answer. A well-crafted story is a compelling tool for delivering content. It communicates its point effectively and leaves a lasting, positive impression on the listener. A well-told story is a critical element in all business presentations. Are your leaders good storytellers?


Strategic StorySelling for Sales Success – Sell It with A Story

It’s no secret: the best salespeople are great storytellers—Story Sellers! They don’t just talk about features and benefits, they tell stories of how a product will work for their prospects. A savvy salesperson who understands the principles of Strategic StorySelling can also use public speaking opportunities to introduce themselves and their product or service to multiple prospects at the same time. This unique method will create top of mind awareness among your prospects and brand you and your business. When they need your product or service, they’ll call you first.


How to Write and Deliver a Dynamite Speech

Leaders and speakers have to do more than just give a speech. They have to create an experience. They have to move beyond content to connection by using stories, illustrations and imagery. This program shows how to stimulate an audience’s auditory, visual and kinesthetic senses – to move them to action. The Dynamite Speech System has 21 Steps, described in three phases: Strategic Design; Creative Development; and Preparation and Delivery. In this presentation, Doug introduces his systematic approach to achieving dynamism from the speaking platform. Available in keynote or workshop format.


Emotional Eloquence – The Lost Language of Leadership

Emotional Eloquence is the next step in leadership development for current and high potential future leaders. This program shows leaders how to translate the qualities of emotional intelligence into speeches and presentations that inspire people to achieve better results. Leaders at all levels, but especially executive and director level leaders, need to re-learn how to inspire and motivate, to be wisdom-sharers. Emotionally eloquent leaders speak to people’s highest aspirations, thereby gaining emotional buy-in from their employees. Their speeches improve morale and inspire confidence in leadership.
