Speech #2.  Business Needs More StorySpeak

An amusing, upbeat, interactive speech of 55-75 minutes.

StorySpeak is more than just telling stories…

…it’s calling men’s perfume “aftershave,” branding Albacore tuna as “Chicken of the Sea,” and telling the boxing world “I’m going to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”

The greatest communicators throughout history know it’s not facts and figures that influence people – it’s emotions and feelings. They know that 80% of the time people make their decisions based on their emotions even though they think they’re being rational.

That’s why you find StorySpeak leading the way in social media, business, law, religion, education, healthcare, finance, travel, entertainment, community, family and all profitable relationships.


The higher your certainty, the more favorably you are viewed.

After studying more than seventy “Charismatic Communicators” throughout history, from Aristotle to George Clooney, Warren Buffett to Sheryl Sandberg, Beyoncé Knowles to Pope Francis, Nicholas Boothman identifies five distinctive ways they use language to:

  • Project Certainty
  • Make Charismatic Conversation
  • Pitch Ideas
  • Problem Solve
  • Inspire Loyalty
  • Captivate any Audience
  • Lead Change
  • Open Hearts at Home and at Work
  • Convince Themselves and Others   MORE
