Speech Topics


STORYBRAND FOR SALES TEAMS

When it comes to talking to their customers, many sales people are so close to their products or services they lose sight of effective ways in communicating and selling to their customers. Donald Miller — the CEO of StoryBrand and a New York Times Bestselling author of 3 books — knows how hard it is to communicate clearly and has helped hundreds of large and small businesses clarify their messaging. When you clarify your message, your website starts working for you, your sales force is better equipped, and your customers speak a viral message that spreads.

In Donald’s keynote, you will: 1. Learn a proven communication formula that has been used in thousands of major motion pictures. 2. See how this formula has been used by the world’s top brands in commercials, print ads and web-based marketing. 3. Discover how this framework can be applied to your sales process

The human brain is drawn to clarity and away from confusion. If customers are confused about what you offer, they’ll look past you for somebody who can say it clearly. Once you clarify your message, your company will begin to grow. Companies that clarify their messaging win in the marketplace.

WHAT IS THE HERO’S JOURNEY?

What does it mean to be a hero in a story? Well, it’s not what you think. Heroes are often flawed, filled with doubt and can feel overwhelmed. But to be a hero, there are three things we must do: 1. Never self identify as a victim. 2. Always face a challenge with honesty and passion. 3. Press on until the challenge set before us has been met.

Using stories from ancient literature and modern film, Don leaves the audience inspired and encouraged to lean in to their own journey.
