    Master Storytelling for More Impact

    Friday February 12, 2021 at 8:30am – 12:00pm Central

      Presented by

    Craig Valentine

    In Daniel Pink’s groundbreaking book, A Whole New Mind, he emphasizes we are moving from the “Information Age” into the “Conceptual Age.” People need a way to filter through a daily avalanche of information. Hence, they look to concepts as shortcuts. Who wins in this new age? Those who sell concepts win. What’s the best way to sell concepts? Storytelling.

    In this powerful and interactive program, Craig Valentine shares tools to help you

    • Keep audiences on the edge of their seats with your stories
    • Uncover humor that keeps your audience laughing throughout the speech
    • Connect deeper than most speakers ever will
    • Get your audience to take the next step you want them to take (connect and convert)
    • Become the kind of speaker others line up and sign up to see

    This is one interactive program you cannot afford to miss! Turn yourself into a storytelling champion and watch as opportunities become abundant for you.
