What is StorySpeak?

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

Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a Dream” speech was delivered in StorySpeak, as was Steve Jobs’ legendary Stanford commencement speech in 2005. Queen Elizabeth the first inspired her troops to victory in 1588 with her “I have the body of a woman; but the heart and stomach of a king” speech.

StorySpeak brings brands to life, strengthens marketing impact and forms the foundation of all growth strategies. The names PayPal, Apple and Windows are all StorySpeak. Mohammed Ali’s “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” is StorySpeak too.

Almost every successful book, movie or song ever written relies on StorySpeak to connect with the emotions as does every riveting conversation, presentation and speech. In 1975, two screenwriters walked into a Hollywood producer’s office and said three words, “jaws in space,” and the blockbuster movie Alien was born. Pure StorySpeak.

Great communicators, since the beginning of time, have used StorySpeak to change attitudes, influence behavior, rally and inspire loyalty and fire up the imagination – in as little as 30 seconds. 

It’s easy.

StorySpeakers earn more, out-perform, do better in school and college, get hired and promoted faster and get better service in person and over the phone than fact-speakers. 

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.

From a world renowned expert on face-to-face communication, with over 3 million books in print in more than 30 languages, comes StorySpeak, a simple and natural way to capture the hearts and minds of individuals, groups and audiences. 

The Irresistible Power of StorySpeak keynote is more than just telling stories, it’s:

Talking in Color – conversation that engages people, brings ideas, products and services alive and makes them real
i-Kolas – simple word pictures on the fly to connect with other people’s emotions to lead change and problem solve
Point-Stories – simple, real-world stories with a point to build a brand, change attitudes and make complicated ideas easy to understand and remember
Stepping-Stones – motivational speeches and presentations to share a vision, enhance business performance, pitch a product and  inspire loyalty

“Bring Boothman’s ideas into your organization, your place of work, and they will have a dramatic effect on everything: how you run meetings, how you solve problems, how you connect with clients, how you connect with each other, fun, morale and general health and well-being.” – DELOITTE CONSULTING
