Take Your Storytelling Skills to the Next Level

It’s one thing to identify a story worth telling. It’s another thing entirely to know how to craft it into a compelling and easy-to-follow narrative. Far too often, storytellers “wing it” in the hopes that what they have in mind will miraculously form itself on the fly while they’re speaking.

If you’ve ever told a story brilliantly one time, only to have it fall apart another time, you need this interactive webinar workshop. Sloppy storytelling doesn’t cut it. If you want to be taken seriously, take your story craft seriously.

In this Deep Dive interactive workshop, you’ll work on one of your stories, and craft it using Doug’s Nine Steps of Story Structure formula. This easy-to-follow formula will give your story a logical and linear flow, a dramatic arc, and an infusion of comedy, drama and emotion.

In addition, you’ll learn how to identify the most powerful point or lesson of your story and how to make your point memorable with a Phrase That Pays.

Bring one story to work on and Doug will guide you through a step-by-step story crafting process.

You’ll Learn How to:

  • Identify the right story that makes the right point for the right situation
  • Choose the point of the story before you begin crafting it
  • Craft your story using The Nine Steps of Story Structure
  • Write a conversational script that is comfortable and easy to memorize
  • Make your point or lesson stick with a Phrase That Pays

Gerry Lantz, Stories That Work®

Motivation and Leadership Keynote

“We brought Doug in to teach the power of storytelling for our C-Suite Leadership Conference. Our members love him. That’s why we keep bringing him back. One of our executives said, ‘This is the best presentation on storytelling I’ve ever attended.’ He’s also a great choice for an opening keynote because he sets the tone for the entire conference. I highly recommend him.”

Meredith Forehand, VP of Leadership Development, Hospital Corporation of America

His workshop is both inspirational and very practical, with easy-to-use tools and techniques. I’m constantly looking for opportunities to bring Doug back into Oracle and I highly recommend him. Doug Stevenson delivers!”

Elizabeth Wiseman, VP, Oracle University

Venture Capital Presentations and Coaching

“Doug is truly a master in teaching the art and science of public speaking and storytelling.  Over 15 months after I studied with Doug, I found myself sharing Doug’s method to the CEO of Qwiki, a San Francisco-based technology startup, the night before a major startup contest.  Doug’s system transformed the CEO’s speech dramatically and we WON the contest.  Winning increased Qwiki’s profile (NY Times, etc.) significantly and, as a result, we accelerated our fundraising process and raised $8 million in Series A financing.  Doug’s Story Theater Method had a direct, measurable, and substantial impact on our company.”

Navin Thukkaram, Managing Director, NT Capital Partners, COO, Qwiki Inc
