Here’s a summarised narrated version of a talk I gave to an entertainment company in NYC on the importance of storytelling in our life, work ,and culture more broadly.

On the day itself we got into a bunch of other topics, from how to communicate stories on someone else’s behalf, which other type of story we can utilise, where we add more conflict or tension, and why this really mattered for their business.

This is (somehow) the first time I’ve done a narrated presentation like this – the lack of body movement and bad jokes definitely feels stifling but hopefully there’s some useful stuff here for you in this abridged version. Enjoy!

Overview:

  • A story of a Citroen 2CV
  • A brief version of my story
  • A history of stories
  • Why you can can be a great storyteller
  • Types of story
  • Elements of story
  • A trip to the barbership
  • Why this matters
