Show Notes for episode #6:
“We don’t actually DO what we propose… we just propose it.” It’s a classic line from a classic UPS commercial that hits one sketchy perception about consultants.
We also explore eight traits found in today’s most successful consultants (thanks to Paulwels Consulting):
- MacGyver-like Problem Solver
- Extra-Mile Mindset
We take a closer look at a keynote delivered a couple of years ago at Content Marketing World by Kevin Spacey… yes, THAT Kevin Spacey, the academy award winning actor. In his keynote, Spacey outlines three key elements for storytelling: (1) Conflict; (2) Authenticity; (3) Audience.
PLUS we share four more storytelling tips from The Moth podcast:
- Know your story by heart
- Stakes are essential in live storytelling
- Start strong with a first line that immediately grabs the audience’s attention
- Know your story so well you can have fun with it
