Our desire to connect with each other is universal, even with those we have nothing in common with. The power of connection is vital to business communication and thought leadership. And no surprise since evoking emotion and persuading others into action through storytelling can lead to improved sales, stronger team-building initiatives and brand growth.

Whether you want to add punch to a presentation, motivate your team, pitch new business or stand out in the recruiting process, storytelling is the key to creating a memorable connection with your audience. Join Esther Choy, Chief Story Facilitator at Leadership Story Lab, to learn structured techniques to connect with your audience.
