Storytelling: Building Compelling Stories for Any Audience (Presentation Materials)

Source: Despicable Me
Nothing irks me more than hearing someone say that they "have to build a deck" or "write a report" before they even mention the actual, you know, content of said deliverable. Especially since it's pretty easy to craft messages that people can relate to, rather than putting together another boring PowerPoint slide.

This presentation explores storytelling at work. Not milk-and-cookies-time-around-the-campfire storytelling, but using storytelling methods to build and deliver messages in a compelling way. Using empathy to draw your audience in and help them to hear your message, and hopefully create a memorable experience in the process.
