A great story without a key message is like an ice cream truck without any ice cream. If you’re going to attract people to your “store” you might as well make a sale.

With human disconnection at an all-time high, stories are more important than ever. 

In today’s digital and virtual environments, when people are feeling more disconnected than ever before, stories have become the primary way to build humanity and a taste of “the real world” into your communications. They are also one of the best ways to influence change.

Research has long shown that stories are the most powerful method of communication. They can be used to build connection, establish credibility, illustrate a point, and overcome objections. Whether you’re building a brand, selling an idea, or leading with vision you need to know how to create stories that are repeatable, powerful and memorable.

Jason can show your audience how to craft their story to send the right message – a message that engages people and inspires them to action. But it doesn’t stop there. They will learn simple but powerful presentation techniques that will give their stories a touch of Hollywood magic – making them memorable, funny, and immersive as well as authentic and natural.

Why settle for just a speaker or trainer when you can have a great storyteller who excels at both in-person and virtual environments?

Conference attendees have to take in a lot of information, and they learn best when they’re being entertained. They also need insight that’s useful, actionable, and memorable. Jason has it all covered.

Imagine a presentation or training workshop that provides the right mix of energy, fun, and big ideas. A presentation that helps make your conference or meeting something attendees will recommend to others.

We asked Jason to teach all our staff more about storytelling. Jason was willing to pivot to an online session that was smoothly delivered and kept our staff totally engaged! Jason worked with us to incorporate relevant examples of our work. It was a great session and we would recommend Jason for your training session.
