When Warren Buffett, the second richest man in the US and holder of the unofficial title ‘America’s Greatest Storyteller’ was asked, “Do you enjoy your work?” he replied, “I tap-dance to work.”

That’s StorySpeak, right there.

It’s a proven fact that using StorySpeak to communicate your messages and ideas is the single most powerful way to connect with customers, investors and employees – and stay connected.

StorySpeak is more than just telling stories.

  • it’s Talking in Color to engage an audience, bring ideas, products and services alive and make them real
  • it’s i-Kola to create word-pictures, connect with people’s emotions and get inside their imaginations to lead change and problem solve 
  • it’s Point-Stories to make a point, build a brand, pitch a product, drive emotional engagement and enhance business performance

When participants leave this upbeat, interactive keynote speech they will be able to:


confidently engage and present to any size of audience and come across as human, trustworthy and compelling by Talking in Color


use i-Kolas (acronym for “it’s kind of like a” ) to capture the imagination by creating word pictures and emotional short stories on the fly


use i-Kolas to make ideas understandable and shareable with a few catchy words (“float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”)


use Point-Stories to solve problems, change attitudes, inspire and embrace change


use Point-Stories to share your vision with customers, staff and new hires and extend that vision into the future


use Talking in Color, I-Kolas and Point-Stories to build relationships with the community and the media 

Success doesn’t just depend on how good you are at explaining complex facts and figures, it depends on how good you are at using words to make ideas sound simple, interesting and memorable.
