|Interview with Troy White, “The Power of Storytelling” (time: 22 mins, 34 secs).
Stories can take many different forms in presentations and speeches. They can be short anecdotes, or longer stories woven into the fabric of a talk, with the climax near the end. The latter keeps the audience involved waiting to hear how it all turned out. These types of stories are the reason Hollywood exists.
We can find stories as far back as cave man days. They were all over the walls – pictures. And that reinforces the saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” A picture can be many things to many people. They’re stories in themselves. So, the use of pictures is your presentations is far more powerful than words.
We remember stories; we remember images. If you want to engage your audience, keep them with you throughout your talk, incorporating pictures and stories is the way to do it.
