The Irresistible Power of Strategic Storytelling
(Customized for Sales, Leadership, Marketing or Women’s Conferences)

The shift from a transactional economy to a connected one has people scrambling; when surveyed, companies admit they believe a substantial portion of their revenue is under threat as a result. Businesses, brands, sales forces, marketing teams and leaders at all levels are desperately trying to capture attention and resonate with consumers who expect more. Is there a secret weapon? A silver bullet to humanize and connect? Yes. The answer is strategic storytelling. 

The problem? In its rapid rise in popularity, “storytelling” has been reduced to in-actionable jargon. Every day businesses and individuals miss critical opportunities to connect with their elusive audiences in powerful and profitable ways because they lack a storytelling skill. Until now.

Kindra Hall has presented for audiences around the world and across industries to equip them with this essential skill for success. Far from jargon or fluff, Kindra’s approach to storytelling is razor-sharp and immediately actionable. The result: Using Kindra’s blueprint for effective storytelling, attendees leave empowered and equipped to close more sales, build better relationships, or blow up their brands by leveraging the irresistible power of their stories.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain clarity on what a story actually is—a nuance lost in the sensationalism of the word
  • Learn how to access the unlimited supply of stories within each brand and/or individual
  • Discover the biggest storytelling mistake and how to avoid it

Story Your Way to Success in Direct Selling

This keynote will revolutionize the way your distributors approach every sales interaction—switching from product facts to telling engaging stories. Kindra not only inspires and empowers direct sellers, she teaches them exactly how to switch to the story default for maximum impact.

The greatest leaders in the network marketing industry influence, motivate and inspire their prospects and teams. This requires more than knowledge about the products or understanding of the compensation plan; a consultant’s success is entirely dependent their ability to communicate the transformation joining their company creates. Second only to developing the courage to seek new prospects, transformational storytelling is the most important skill for success in the direct selling industry. 

Through compelling research, profound case studies, and captivating stories of her own, Kindra will elevate individuals on all levels of your company. The outcome of this keynote is an army of individuals ready to change lives with the story of how your company changed theirs.

 

Full Day Workshop

Storytelling workshops are ideal for clients who not only want attendees to gain excitement and applicable insights into applying strategic storytelling, but to also put the skill to work under Kindra’s expert guidance.

The Full Day Workshop begins by generating participant excitement about the storytelling opportunity through Kindra’s compelling one hour keynote. Through research, case studies, and her own expertly-told stories, Kindra proves that a simple shift to telling compelling stories will create massive and measurable results.

In the second phase, participants examine the stories being told or missing within their organization. Prior to the workshop, Kindra analyzes the current company messaging—including but not limited to videos, websites, brochures, PowerPoint presentations, sales pitches and through interviews—to identify storytelling gaps. After discussion and discovery, Kindra leads the group through guided exercises to develop a suite of stories to deliver the organizations most important messages and achieve their most urgent goals. The final phase includes participants telling stories live and receiving real-time feedback and additional story techniques from Kindra.

Participants leave the storytelling workshop feeling empowered, equipped and excited to use their stories to gain an advantage—to either drive sales, create better marketing messages, raise more funds, build better customer relationships, or to lead their teams more effectively. Or all of the above. Workshops are customizable to client needs.
