How can storytelling help us connect with our audience, be others focused and better position our product through storytelling? Robbie Crabtree

How can storytelling help us connect with our audience? be others focused and better position our product through storytelling?

Leading with company slides, logos and product pitches is a sure way to repel our audience.

Knowing where the gaps are, when the hesitations arise in advance allows us to pre-prepare stories to bridge the gap of where they are and where they want to be.

To do this effectively we need to become great story tellers! Reverse engineer the story for our audience and their desired outcome.

I had the pleasure of speaking with trial lawyer Robbie Crabtree who shares his framework and tactics of how he used storytelling in high stake courtroom situations and now how now  leverages his skills to teach others become effective storytellers as the Founder of Performative Speaking.

This is an action packed conversation that covers many tactical ways to connect and engage with your audience.  Disarm them and create the perfect situation to share a story or better yet invite them to share a story and start building the foundations for a trustworthy partnership .
