Five Ways To Tell Stories That Stick

During my latest Strategies for Effective Stakeholder Engagement course, I related my Babson strategy professors admonition that stories are at the core of how humans communicate. Stories are how we conveyed knowledge and memorized facts long before the written or printed word. To that end, here’s the open of a Babson entrepreneurship post on storytelling when selling initiatives or other start-ups:

Entrepreneurs are constantly pitching, sharing their vision and venture in order to secure funding, make a sale, meet a new contact, and build out their team. Business plans are boiled down to bullets, and financials become memorized statistics.

Although these elements are vitally important to a successful pitch, the real power comes from telling a compelling narrative story.

This brief post then lays out five ways to ensure your stories stay with your audience. You know the drill, follow the link.
