Developing Effective Stories to Achieve Business Results
Speaker: Cyndy Quigley

Are you ready to join us for an engaging and interactive ride through the realm of business storytelling?  
There is no one right way to tell a story, but there are useful rules that serve as guideposts to ensure your stories are constructed for maximum effect. Understanding some common dos and don’ts will serve as a handy reference to help you develop effective stories that achieve your desired business results. This session will focus on:
Tactical things you can start doing today to put the natural power of stories to work. Ways to accelerate building strong, trusted relationships with your clients and business partners using story-based communication techniques
Practicing story listening to discern the details, context and heart of your clients/business partners needs
Creating and practicing your compelling elevator pitch whether to sell more work to a client or sell an idea to your business partners
