Happy New Year from NSA-IL!

CRAIG VALENTINE: Master Storytelling for More Impact 

Success these days means finding a way to rise through a daily avalanche of information and get noticed. How? Thought leader Daniel Pink advises that we’re moving from the “Information Age” into the “Conceptual Age.” If we want to succeed, we as speakers need to make that shift to selling concepts rather than information. Expert Craig Valentine will show us how storytelling is the best way to sell concepts. 

Join us to learn how to:

  • Keep audiences on the edge of their seats with your stories
  • Uncover humor to keep your audience laughing 
  • Get your audience to connect and convert + more
