Storytelling expert Dave Bricker says stories are the single most powerful form of human communication. Which means stories are important to your business whether you head a Fortune 500 company or are just starting your entrepreneurial journey.

Listen as the author of StorySailing shares:

  • The golden rule of storytelling (miss this and your stories will fall flat 100% of the time).
  • How to craft powerful stories using a 4-part  metaphor developed from his days sailing deep water on the open seas.
  • Why stories are crucial to distinguish you from your competition.
  • The key aspect of storytelling that’ll keep your listener engaged with your story.
  • Why – and how – stories told aloud must differ from written stories.
