Why Storytelling is Important for Today’s Organizations
In the world of sales and influence, everyone is in love with stories these days – and for good reason.
Research has shown that stories are your key tools to gain influence and attention – tools you can use to build connection, establish credibility, illustrate crucial points, and overcome objections.
Like any tool however, stories can be harmful if you use them the wrong way, or in the wrong situation. That’s why you need to understand exactly how they work.
Jason can show you how to craft your story to send the right message. A message that engages your audience and inspires them to action.
Then it’s time to put on that Hollywood touch and make your story both entertaining and memorable. These are the stories that not only win over your audience, but turn them into fans!

Expertise second to none
Jason’s experience telling powerful stories began early. As a budding screenwriter in his 20s, Jason learned his craft from a wide range of famous storytellers, including Oscar-winning writers Frank Pierson and Lowell Ganz, as well as Canada’s favourite storyteller, Stuart MacLean.
Moving to television, Jason worked as a news writer, show producer, and news director, where he successfully trained and mentored many of Canada’s top broadcasters in how to communicate complex information through story.
For the past eight years, Jason has helped speakers, experts and executives create talks and stories that help them sell themselves, their services and their ideas.
