Persuade With A Story!Henry DeVries
HUMANS ARE HARDWIRED FOR STORIES
Storytelling helps consultants and coaches persuade on an emotional level.

Nothing is as persuasive as storytelling with a purpose, and readers will learn the techniques of telling a great story employed by Hollywood, Madison Avenue and Wall Street.
- How you can add persuasion power to presentations
- Eight great metastories you need to tell
- The art and science of storytelling
