There has been so much hype lately on the impact of storytelling. We keep hearing the buzz about the brain being wired for stories. We know the importance of setting, character, and action. And we realize that while bullet lists make communication efficient, it's the emotion behind a story that counts. This is why we devour news, novels, and movies.
We know all this.
But there is so much more.
For example, not all stories are created equal. While we tout the “memorability” factor of stories, the human brain can forget them. How many stories do you really remember from the past week? To influence others’ action, we must ask: What makes a story memorable? And what is the optimal amount of narrative we can use, especially when we communicate scientific and technical information? After all, we want to be memorable and credible.
Join guest presenter, Carmen Simon who will share the latest in brain science research on storytelling and how to best apply it to influence others. Amplexor's Sharon Austin will align storytelling to transcreating content that personally appeals and resonates to global audiences, regardless of culture.
