Storytelling at Work

Everyone knows stories matter. But how do they work? And how might they apply to the way you connect with customers and teams?
 
We had those questions too. So we built this experience.

Presentations That Don’t Suck

Probably.
 
Still, good presentations matter. This experience helps participants merge stories, data, and visuals in a way that engages an audience.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

Ei programs return value to the bottom line.

In one example, a design director at a creative agency and here team were brainstorming ways to pitch an existing client on new work. The idea was to create a concept store and update the brand. While the team was confident in both the potential business impact and their ability to execute, it wasn’t something that the client was actively looking for. The team would have to be strategic about how they presented it. They were stuck about how to proceed.

Remembering a framework introduced in the Ei High-Impact Storytelling workshop, the design director decided to apply it for the pitch. In an email reflecting on the results, she shared it was “probably the most productive 60 minutes we’ve had in years!” They crafted a compelling pitch, presented it to the client, and landed the work – a contract worth half a million dollars.
