Event description


Buying decisions are driven by both rational and emotional thought processes and sellers who fail to engage, persuade and inspire emotionally are missing opportunities.

Telling the right type of story at the right part of the buying process is the key engaging both the rational and emotional sides of your buyer.

We've been teaching business storytelling for over 15 years now and have helped some of the world's largest corporations put stories to work including Microsoft, Mars, Electronic Arts, Teradata, SAP, and Danone. We can help you develop practical story skills.

And we help sellers do this with our Story-Powered Sales* program that will teach you the techniques you need to effectively tell the story of your products and services, discover your prospect stories and close more and better deals faster.

This one-day workshop is followed by a 4-month program deliberate practice program designed to build your story-selling habit.

Stories that share insight and convey emotion inspire a prospect to take the next step.

Your buyer wants to know how others did it, and how your offering made a difference. Bullet points just don't cut it. Instead, a well-told story helps prospects picture a future where they're benefitting from your solution.

And Story-Powered Sales integrates with your sales approach to enhance what is already in place.

Prepare sales managers to be coaches

Sales management plays a vital role in embedding a new skill such as storytelling. They need to model the new behaviour, extol its benefits, and celebrate success when their sellers make it work. Sales managers who attend can become story coaches.

Work on real opportunities

Sellers are busy people. It's hard for you to put aside a day to learn a new skill. That's why we encourage you to bring a live opportunity and improve it with stories to help make progress in closing your sale.

Finding stories for you to tell

You will have your own stories, but often they are hidden away in the recesses of our memories. During the day we will help you remember your stories to build up your story library.

Teaching storytelling skills and making them stick

Story-Powered Sales is not merely a one-off workshop, but a complete 4-month program. It includes:

  • Full one-day workshop. The workshop is highly interactive as we firmly believe in the power of practical activities to foster learning. Throughout the day you will engage in hands-on activities designed to build your storytelling skills and confidence.
  • Our unique Deliberate Practice Program to embed the learning. The program runs over four months. Each week, you receive a short email suggesting an activity to practice your new-found storytelling skills. We have some other tips and tricks too to share to make your learning stick.

The Deliberate Practice Program includes online support, with the opportunity to ask questions and share your experiences at any time.

(Story-Powered Sales was formerly called Storytelling for Sales)

We have designed Story-Powered Sales for any business developer, seller or sales manager who wants to influence, inspire and make more sales, faster. The course is also suitable for professional services people.
