Day 50: Why become a story-teller?

We had a speaker today (The lovely Shelley Canright) who talked about the power of story-telling in presentations. (Really, everyone should be a storyteller every day. It would make life so much more interesting.)

I think my favorite bit of wisdom she gave away was about the audience. You need to know your audience for your presentation. “Or else it’s like writing a love letter and addressing it to whom it may concern,” she said.

Agreed. Let’s all make a collective pact not to do that and think about our audience for every¬†presentation and social media post. Yes, it takes longer to do, but the outcome is always so much better.
