According to a report published by Open University1, 73% of social media users believe that deception online is widespread. With so much information to go through, social media users are having a hard time knowing what’s fact vs fiction.

Storytelling is a great way to cut through the clutter, but if the story appears too good to be true, or if you share the wrong parts of your story, it will only create doubt between the listener and you, the teller.

The way to regain trust and be memorable is to share your personal using a proven story structure. Using case studies and research, Leesa Renee Hall shares how you can use your personal story to connect and engage better.

After attending this session, audience members will walk away understanding the following:

  • How playing the role of a 70-year woman on stage for a sold-out show helped Leesa understand why business storytelling is different from other storytelling methods
  • The neuroscience behind why stories are remembered and how it triggers our brain to want more
  • How to know which parts of your personal story to include – and what to leave out
  • Case studies of companies, celebrities, and corporations who have used stories to connect, engage and inform
  • The Signature Story Structure to use so you design your story in the most optimal way (Leesa will take your audience through this step-by-step)
