Storytelling: What is it?

Our whole life is a story when you stop for a moment to really think about it. We are constantly telling stories to each other at home, at work and even to people that we meet for the first time.

In public speaking and presenting one of the most powerful ways to connect emotionally with an audience and inspire action is through storytelling.
