You know that including stories, especially personal stories, in your presentations is important to connect with and engage the audience. This is true whether you’re giving a keynote, a business presentation, or a training.
Along with integrating various stories and examples throughout your presentations, you can also have one core story that illustrates your topic and why it’s important.
This is what my guest Chanta Wilkinson and I have been working on during our coaching sessions as part of our Thought Leader Academy.
Chanta provides trainings and workshops for organizations around diversity, equity, and inclusion, so we identified a story going back to when she was a young girl that perfectly illustrates why she has gravitated to this work and why DEI is so important.
Even better, we’ve identified different angles she can use from this one core story, depending on who’s in the audience and what she wants to emphasize.
You are going to love Chanta’s energy and passion for what she does!
