Most business stories are the human equivalent of a stranger you meet at a party who talks endlessly about themselves. Before long, you’re looking over their shoulder for someone more interesting. And that could be your competitor.

Chief Storyteller Chris Hewitt, will show you how to filter your message through a six-step story process and end up with something much more engaging and memorable.

This will bring clarity to your pitch and in turn, win hearts, minds and more exposure for your business.

Through storytelling, sales pitches become more successful, social media posts more shareable, content more colourful. You will be able to power-up your presentations so that they become more memorable. In fact, the intimacy created by storytelling, will improve your relationships, and even create lasting friendships with your clients. 

Why? Because we all love a good storyteller. We all like listening to someone who can entertain us. Hold our attention. Not because of what they say or do, but because of how they make us feel.
