Netflix-ise your Presentations

Presenting like Simon Sinek or public speaking like Obama

Enjoy speaking in public!

Many people find their own presentations boring. It seems the audience is uninterested after just 3 minutes. Or does not understand what you are saying.

Engaging speakers do something different. Their presentation is an experience because they bring their message as an exciting story. And it works wonders!

You can do that too

Part 1: Storytelling as a Messenger

This first workshop will reveal the secrets of storytelling. Why are people so eager to hear a story, believe every word of it and therefore believe the narrator? You will see some great examples of storytelling used in business that are compelling evidence of the ease to deliver a convincing message. By the way, what is your message?

  • Our Brain is a real Story Machine
  • The powerful effects of story
  • Convincing strategies
  • Objective and audience
  • Assignment: what is your message?

Part 2: Find the Story

In the second workshop you discover two stories of your own that communicate your message. When you intensify these stories using the laws of storytelling, your audience will grasp and embrace the message.

  • 3 story types
  • Find a story – method 1
  • Find a story – method 2
  • The universal structure of a great story
  • Narrative elements that make the story exciting
  • Assignment: write out your story, send it in, and receive personal feedback

Part 3: Storytelling in a Presentation

Now it is time to integrate the telling of stories in a business presentation. What are the caveats, how do you begin a story, how do you make sure they got the point, etc.

  • Reviewing the story feedback
  • 3 ways to integrate the story
  • Bring the story to life on stage
  • Interact with the audience
  • What about Powerpoint?
  • Be prepared for telling the story
  • Assignment: set up your presentation

Part 4: It’s Presentation Time!

This is the workshop we have been working towards. Everyone gives their presentation and receives feedback, tips and tricks. Experiment, try, experience and learn also by looking at others. You will see for yourself what works and what doesn’t. We look at body language, use of voice, gestures, interaction, but above all: how do you stay authentic and tell it as real as possible.

Present like a storyteller

They wrap their message in a good story. Their audience listens carefully. Their message gets across. And they enchant their audience. That is why storytelling is the best presentation technique. After these workshops you can do that too.

A totally different public speaking course

Forget PowerPoint. This is about telling your presentation. You are working on a presentation you once gave or will give in the near future. In the workshops you’ll make it catchy and impressive. And you will practice a lot of course. Afterwards you go home with a real story you can use the next day in a presentation.

Storytelling as your presentation technique – you will shine

  • You can you easily explain a complex topic
  • Your audience will see your are real and trustworthy
  • You will touch your audience in their heart
  • Your message is understood and accepted
  • Your presentations are exciting to listen to
  • You will enjoy presenting a lot better!

“From the first minute Erik knows how to hold your attention during the workshop. His stories evoke a lot of recognition. His tips are clear. This will help me a lot. My head is already spinning with ideas. Absolutely recommended! ”
Nicole Gout, Nationale-Nederlanden

Do you want to improve your speaking skills?

This program is intended for anyone who wants to present better, more concise and compelling. Much or little experience with presenting or storytelling is irrelevant. You get exactly the help, attention and critical feedback that you need.

How does this online training storytelling work?

Only 6 people can participate in the program. Due to this small group, you get a lot of personal attention, tips and feedback. Everyone has their camera and microphone turned on – so you can just talk and see each other. This is how it looks like. You join the workshop comfortably at your kitchen table, and thanks to the unique OnLive approach, it feels like we are together in one of my beautiful training locations. Each workshop lasts 1½ hours including a short coffee break. To keep you alert there is a lot of variation: explanations, experiments, discussion, telling with feedback, example stories, video clips and  of course assignments. Lively contact and energy guaranteed!
