Have you ever sat through a talk or presentation and felt bored to distraction before the speaker has even reached the half way point? You keep looking at your watch wondering how much longer you need to endure this person speaking, seemingly drivelling on and on and boring the pants off you?
Chances are the speaker never engaged you or connected with you personally. Possibly because they delivered a ream of facts, statistics or figures and committed the deadliest of all public speaking sins, – they omitted telling a story.
Story telling is one of the most crucial skills a speaker needs in order to engage with their audience. Without a story, the speaker runs the risk of disengagement and being totally unmemorable. If you want to engage your audience, ensure they remember you and deliver information that is effective you absolutely need this skill.
So, what is your story? How do you find it? How much do you reveal? Do you use a personal story, a client story? Or, some other kind of story? What constitutes a story?
Aly Harrold will help you understand why story telling is such a valuable tool to use when presenting or speaking to an audience and help you to discover how you can make storytelling an easy and effortless part of your marketing.
Aly Harrold is an award-winning speaker and Professional Speaking Coach. She coaches the woman who is ‘rabbit in the headlights terrified’ of standing in front of an audience, to feeling confident and excited about delivering a brilliant talk. She works with established speakers who want to up-level their speaking and those who have a crucial Keynote or TEDx Talk to deliver. She does this with workshops, group programmes and one to one work. In Aly’s words “Public Speaking is an art, an art anyone can learn. No one was born a natural speaker, they took the art seriously and applied themselves making it look easy when they stand up there to mesmerise their audience”
Don’t miss this talk, you are guaranteed to leave inspired and motivated to go out there and ‘Be so good they can’t ignore you!’
