How to effectively use personal stories from the platform.

Joanna Campbell Slan

A book that guides the reader in finding, shaping and presenting personal stories to make salient points while public speaking. Endorsed by Toastmasters, and used by Benjamin Netanyahu's speechwriter, the author is a former corporate speechwriter for the executives of Diamond Star Motors and Illinois Farm Bureau.


"At other times in human history, stories were one way of keeping alive a culture...The best storytellers continue a long tradition of telling and entertaining. But no storyteller can be successful without a keen desire to meet the audience's needs. Besides bonding with each other, the moment the audience accepts the speaker's invitation to hear a story, they bond with the speaker."
