Summary:
Your product pitch won't get you very far unless it is boiled down to the most salient points and presented in a way that inspires people to take new and different action that drives better business results.  The truth is that what inspires and enrolls people in your product vision more than anything else in hearing compelling and engaging stories that clearly illustrate the value of your products while painting a vivid picture in the minds and hearts of your audience.

Storytelling is part art and part craft.  Many believe that you either have it or you don't.  In actuality, storytelling is very much a learnable skill.  This ability is especially crucial for product managers where the business opportunities can be huge, and the ability to convey that opportunity in a way that inspires and moves people into action is paramount.  In this highly interactive talk, you will learn the reasons why your stakeholders are most inspired by stories and how to construct and deliver your own compelling stories that will enroll others in your product vision.
