Two Minute Connection: Storytelling

Stories pass along values and understanding across the decades. Stories inform and motivate.

This 2 minute connection video clip was taken from Bill’s Keynote Address at the DMA Convention in NYC. It will show how to capture the attention of your audience. Pay attention to your heart…and send us your own storytelling experience.

In our upcoming 2 Minute Connections we will share more ideas, to assist all of us in reaching our greatest potential!

“Tell to Win” by Peter Guber


Finally…if you want to dig deeper into Storytelling, become familiar with “Tell to Win” by Peter Guber. This is an excellent book that states the need for bold storytelling.




Send us your “storytelling” experience and please give us permission to pass it on to our 2 Minute Connection Followers. You can also subscribe here on our web site.
