"Nothing Beats A Great Fact Better Than A Good Story."
Ask any group of business leaders, sales professional or people trying to affect change, “how many of you are “storytellers?," few will raise their hand. Ask again after they listen to Jim Signorelli and few will keep their hands down.
The simple fact is we are all storytellers. Studies have shown that close to 70% of our conversations are about "who did what to whom?” Whether we use personal anecdotes, gossip (hopefully the positive kind), or reference examples to clarify a point, we are always telling stories.
We know how stories work. We know how they engage listeners, clarify and keep us entertained. But what many of us don’t realize is that storytelling is not the dominion of stage performers, comedians or screenwriters. After years of studying the theory and practice of storytelling, Jim has arrived at a set of story patterns we can use in our everyday business affairs - techniques that will measurably improve one's ability to influence, inspire and motivate others. By the time Jim’s audience leaves the room, they will not only learn what those patterns are, but they will be able to put them into practice right away.
Jim’s presentations are fun and entertaining. But most of all, they are enlivening as he pulls open the curtain to reveal a more rewarding way to lead, sell or elicit support. As one attendee recently remarked, “Jim can beat a great story out of even the most boring facts. Bye-bye Powerpoint! Hello storytelling!”
As you might expect, Jim wouldn’t be able to talk credibly about the power of story unless he had a few good stories of his own. Having spent 30 years creating advertising and partnering with leaders, sales professionals and major brands like Citibank, Burger King, Toshiba Computers, KFC, Arby’s, Kraft Foods, and General Electric he has plenty of stories - stories that will teach as well as they enthrall.
If you’re familiar with his two best-selling, award-winning books, or you’ve seen or heard Jim on TV and radio, you’ll be happy to know that Jim Signorelli is as plain-spoken in front of a microphone as he is as a writer or while being interviewed. One critic wrote, "Jim doesn't speak, he converses with his audience." And his combination of wit, wisdom and passion are things that always gets mentioned on feedback forms.
So if you’re looking for a compelling, provocative and experienced speaker who can have a lasting impact on an audience, you owe it to yourself to pick up the phone and ask Jim Signorelli how he can tailor his message to your group.
