The Storyteller’s Mind Movie: Become an Emotionally Connected Leader Through Your Storytelling Skills by Melissa Reaves provides a powerful set of tools for speakers and presenters striving to get their message heard and understood. Reaves is an experienced professional with a broad background spanning both business and theater. Using this combination of skills, she guides us through a process of weaving our messages into engaging stories that can help make points both clear and compelling. Various methods and tips are covered, including how to personalize your message, how to put a human touch on otherwise boring facts and figures, and how to organize your stories so you can use them repeatedly.
Melissa Reaves’s The Storyteller’s Mind Movie brings much-needed humanity to the otherwise often sterile world of business presentations. While focused on the business of attracting investors, the tools in this guide can be used in a variety of presentation situations, including day-to-day business presentations by corporate employees. This is an insightful work, drawing on Reaves’s experiences that include improvisational acting. She is a savvy businessperson, but she also understands the human side of communication. I was intrigued by her discussions regarding inserting interesting and sometimes emotional stories into a presentation can demonstrably increase listeners’ retention of data and other details. Whether you are trying to raise capital for your latest world-changing business venture or trying to convince your company’s C-suite to define strategic direction, these lessons will increase your chances of success.
