Presentation Skills, Story Workshops, and Coaching
“It’s all about the story. Story is how we connect one to another and understand the world around us. Research and science support this claim. If you want to convince, convey, create action; story serves to make it so.”
But, if you are like me, you will want to hear a Story…
Story is an effective tool across all sectors: at the World Bank I’ve witnessed projects stalled in negotiations finally come to fruition and signed agreements with the seemingly simple addition of stories from real world impact of their project rather than the typical complex data dump or death by powerpoint.
“In a short timeframe, you will learn how to present your ideas concisely and convincingly. You will become a master at turning boring presentations full of nerdy slides into engaging talks supported by powerful images. Kristin moderates this online course masterfully. She provides just-in-time feedback and lots of customized tips and advice. If you think you don’t have time for this — think again. This is a great investment of your time, and it will pay off!”

“The course made me look at every presentation differently. Kristin turned on end my notion of how to do a good presentation, built my confidence, and skills.
PS – I think we need a revolution to change wordy powerpoints. It’s not about the slides but about the story!”

So, how does this apply to you?
- Do you want to clearly communicate key messages and share insights beyond the numbers?
- Do you want to convince your audience to take action, whether that = coming to YES for funding or implementing a new procedure?
- Do you have a Story to tell, but aren’t exactly sure how? Or a presentation to deliver and though you’ve got super slides and all your data, it’s missing a little je ne sais quoi (that’s French for “something.” ? )
PS. “It’s never about the data, it’s about the story behind the numbers.” ~ Hans Rosling, Big Data Genius.
