"Forget PowerPoint and statistics. To involve people at the deepest level, you need to tell stories."
Harvard Business Review

Instead of taking the time to craft captivating stories, most entrepreneurs create dreary PowerPoint presentations filled with facts, jargon, buzzwords, and graphs.  Many entrepreneurs are so enthusiastic about what they're building that they assume their audience is just as interested. They start rattling off the facts without first making an effort to pull in their audience. No matter how compelling the facts are, if your audience isn't invested in what you're saying, all that data will be lost on them. The Story Edge workshop will give you a unique, competitive advantage by teaching you how to structure a story that is easily understood, believable and memorable.

Next workshop: November 18, 2013, 12 - 4pm

Location: TechTown Detroit, 440 Burroughs Street, Detroit, Michigan 24226

"Storytelling is everything. Show me an MBA and your sales numbers, that's fine. But tell me a great story about how you got started and your vision, and we'll talk." Barbara Corcoran from the TV Show, Shark Tank
