    Mirror, mirror on the wall, which is the best story of them all?

    It's no secret; in marketing, whoever tells the best story wins. Everyday marketers are missing opportunities to connect with their customers because we simply don't know what a good story sounds like anymore.

    In this engaging and immediately applicable presentation, professional speaker and storytelling consultant Kindra Hall will reveal why a great story is essential to great marketing. This presentation is complete with a brand case study on the biggest storytelling mistake marketers make.

    You will walk away with:

    • Understanding of why storytelling works so well - to fully take advantage of it.

    • Clarity on what a Story actually is - a nuance that has been lost in the sensationalism of the word.

    • The most effective strategy to identify your personal and company stories.

    • The three-step process for crafting a compelling story.

    • Knowledge of exactly where and how to tell these stories.
