Ever dreamed of giving a TED Talk or getting on the speaker’s circuit? Or perhaps you’d like to feel more confident talking in your Insta stories, giving your next presentation at work, speaking with your colleagues or customers, or even just telling a yarn to your friends? Today’s podcast guest, Carmine Gallo, says that no matter what type of speaking you’d like to get better at, there’s one crucial ingredient that will take you from good to great: epic storytelling. And in this aha-filled episode, he’s sharing exactly how to do it…
Carmine Gallo is a Wall Street Journal bestselling author, internationally popular keynote speaker, Harvard instructor, and communication advisor for the world’s most admired brands. Named a “communications guru” by Publishers Weekly, Carmine’s books — including his ever popular ‘Talk Like TED’, ‘The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs’ and his latest, ‘‘Five Stars: The Communication Secrets to Get from Good to Great’ — have been translated into more than 30 languages and are beloved by thousands of readers across the globe.
So many of the world’s top performers, business legends, and thought leaders cite storytelling as an essential ingredient in their success. And as Carmine points out, it’s no wonder: a good story can inspire your audience into action, change the way they think, and persuade them to activate their full potential. It’s a skill that can benefit everyone — whether in your business, workplace, social life or with your kids.
