About this event

I tried to sell my ideas with fact and features, but I failed.

Once I tried to communicate the way humans are built to understand--with a story--things changed.

If you're trying to get a human to hear your point, agree with you, buy your thing, or invest their money, you need a story.

When correctly constructed, stories are the shortcut to:

- Understanding

- Empathy

- Simulation

- Inspiration

But, here's the secret...

Crafting an impactful story is not as complicated as you think.

Once you learn the cheat code for telling a good story, you'll be able to successfully build them into your pitches, sales conversations, presentations, birthday party speeches, eulogies--essentially anywhere you are talking to humans.

Here's what people say about this Speedrun:

Brenda, Senior Director:

"I was rapt from the beginning! Your intro story helped me to understand who you are and what your "why" is. Your intro exercise was dual-purposed and effective. Your examples were insightful, thought-provoking, and humorous. I especially liked the graphic on change, because the triangle (delta) is the symbol of change!! The interactions with the other students were very relevant and gave more context. The pace was good and I could listen to your radio-quality voice all day. I have nothing negative to say, and I apologize for that because I know that can help improve the outcome. (I wasn't always like that!)"
