  • HOW TO SPEAK LIKE A PRO: Tell A Story!

    NUGGET 15 > HOW TO SPEAK LIKE A PRO: Tell A Story!

     

    In trying to wow an audience, tell an appropriate short story!

     

    There’s this thing about stories. They’re great and incredibly useful tools in public speaking. I’m yet to see anyone who wouldn’t listen to an interesting, spellbinding story.

     

    When you inject an appropriate story from personal or vicarious experience into a message, you drive your points home with one deft stroke. Any sleeping member of your audience comes alive. Sleep-drugged eyes snap open. Bent necks and drooping heads ‘stand’ straight!

     

    Prof Chinua Achebe is right: “The story is our escort; without it, we are blind.” I agree. I love listening to and telling good stories. Do you?
