The most important thing that you have to offer your audience, your client or your prospect is your story. Many business owners these days are telling stories, and that’s a good thing.  But too many stories fall flat, fail to connect or convert, and that’s not a good thing.  When an audience is connected and engaged in a captivating story, their emotions are activated and emotionally connected customers buy more of a company’s products and services with less price sensitivity. If you want a greater emotional connection that leads to more conversion, you want to learn how to tell a captivating story.   


  • Understand the power of a well-told story  
  • Gain more clarity in your message or story 
  • Learn to structure your story for greater impact 
  • Apply 5 steps to captivate your audience
