When strangers come together, joy and knowledge can be shared, hope can be found, food can be grown, diseases can be cured oceans can be cleaned, the climate can be controlled and miracles can happen.

It has never been more important to talk to strangers than it is today. Political correctness, digital distractions and polarized politics are making strangers out of all of us. The result is an epidemic of loneliness anxiety and depression across all ages, socio-economic groups and nations. 

It’s time for a change.

It’s time to talk to the strangers who are our neighbors to find out what we can learn from them. Not just the things we agree on but the things we disagree on because that’s where the learning and the leadership begins.

It’s time to talk to share knowledge and joy.

And it’s time to talk to make magic because strangers don’t just hold the keys to joy and knowledge: they hold the keys to something much more exciting. Lucky breaks and serendipity. There’s not a single Nobel prize winning scientist, billionaire or celebrity will refute this. They know lucky breaks are real and they can change your life in a flash and they normally come in the shape of strangers.

We need the emotional input of other humans as much as we need the air we breathe and the food we eat. Deprive of us of it and we will wither and die just as surely as if you took away our food and fresh air. 



The Irresistible Power of StorySpeak – The new strategic imperative for business development.

 Audiences learn 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. 
  • it’s TALKING IN COLOR for charismatic conversation that makes people feel good and excited
  • it’s I-KOLAs – simple word pictures to capture hearts, minds and spirits
  • it’s POINT-STORIES – short strategic real-world stories to build a brand, fundraise, change attitude and make complicated concepts sound simple and memorable
  • it’s STEPPING STONES – rousing motivational speeches and presentations to share a vision, pitch a product, enhance performance and inspire loyalty  

Research shows 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.
