  • How (and Why) to Tell Killer Sales Stories
    There’s a scene in the British comedy Cemetery Junction that I love because I think it’s a perfect representation of the power of sales stories and storytelling in sales. The scene (set in the 1970s) centers on two door-to-door insurance salesmen, Freddie and Mike, who arrive at a middle-aged couple’s home to sell them a […] The post How (and Why) to Tell Killer Sales Stories appeared first on Dua...

  • Improve Your Storytelling Presentation Skills and Get Your Ideas Adopted

See how Nancy Duarte used raw slides to present her idea for the Duarte Academy to her staff.

I left the conference energized and inspired. It also struck me that many of the things that moved […]
