My last blog entry discussed how stories can make management or sales presentations more effective. The next few entries will indicate some of the places where you can find stories in your organisation and the relative strengths and weaknesses of each source.
Source 1: Internet
There are thousands of websites that can be found with stories that can be utilised in your presentations to highlight and emphasise your key points. The major downside of utilising the internet as a source of stories is that the story will lack a true personal connection with your audience. These stories, will involve characters and situations that your audience can not directly relate to.
Rather than using stories from the Internet directly; use them as a template or inspiration for finding stories in your workplace or business.
Have you used stories from the internet? If so, what was your experience?
