Cristina Fonseca (Talkdesk co-founder) visited Founders Founders this week & gave an interesting talk (& office hours) to the community. ?
In short – it was amazing. ? You know how some people just captivate your interest, right away when they start to speak? This was clearly the case.
When I was thinking about why we all stayed that impressed so easily, it hit me. It’s the power of storytelling. ?
Cristina just told us her story. She told it in a simple, direct, genuine & truthful manner, allowing the audience to perceive her as a regular person that managed to follow her dreams.
You can use storytelling to pass your ideas or even to sell a product & if you have difficulties in doing this naturally you can always use the help of some tricks that are commonly used (check here for some tips). ?
And if you top off a good story with great public speaking capabilities, you end up with a very powerful tool to influence and help others. ?
With time, details will fade, but not the feeling you convey on your talk. It’s all about this lasting positive effect that you can create on others.➕
Share your awesome stories & create new ones!
I challenge you to try this at our monthly events! ?
