Whether you’re selling, negotiating, interviewing, networking, or leading a team, success depends on convincing other people – and convincing other people depends of making meaningful connections and articulating your business ideas in ways that are simple and memorable.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re selling real estate, interviewing for a job, designing concept cars, recommending the lamb chops over the chili con carne, or looking for the perfect partner, people must feel, “I trust you, you make sense, and you move me.”

Nicholas Boothman, an expert on forging instant relationships, shows how to use the tools available to all of us – face, body, attitude, words and voice to establish trust and master the people-to-people skills that will help you persuade others to embrace and act on your ideas.

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.

Speech #2.   Business Needs More StorySpeak

An inspirational interactive speech of 55-75 minutes.


StorySpeak is 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.” Happy stuff and powerful.

But, StorySpeak is more than just that. It’s about painting simple word-pictures to pitch ideas, land the job or sale, it’s telling short stories to make things more interesting, and creating conversation with chemistry to captivate, to explain and motivate audiences of any size.

Business Needs More StorySpeak is an upbeat interactive speech that shows audiences how to plant emotional, memorable, mental images of what you want to communicate to other people: be it ideas, values, motivation, knowledge or understanding so they’ll be inspired and deep-down happy.  More
