Why Is Storytelling Important in Business?

If you’d rather catch up on your favourite TV show than listen to a business pitch, you may want to ask yourself ‘why?’ Stories in books and films use narrative techniques to tug at your heartstrings but making a business case requires facts and data that aren’t quite as exciting. It is exactly this reason why storytelling is vital in business. With engaging storytelling skills, pitch ideas can be turned from mere figures to gripping anecdotes that keep your clients interested and wanting more. Adding narratives to technical business ideas can turn heavy topics into messages that are remembered. As leaders, you’re always trying to influence others, from team members to stakeholders, and telling stories can create the impact you need.

→ Expanding into a new market
→ Conference meetings
→ Dealing with management change
→ Merger and acquisition
