What makes you YOU?
(Why telling a great story about yourself changes everything).
There’s a common saying, “Everyone has their own story to tell.” In this talk, Andrew will explore what that means and how it can help you to stand out in a crowded marketplace (business owners, professionals, job seekers and online daters are all in the same boat here). Your story is the thing that makes you YOU. It’s what helps people decide, “You’re the one for me.”
But it’s a tricky concept to understand. What should you say? Where do you draw the line when it comes to putting your true self out there? How do you show vulnerability and yet convey strength? How do you weave your story together and deliver it confidently, conversationally and with authenticity?
Andrew will share some tools and techniques you can use to craft and deliver your story in this fascinating talk. He will introduce a model for a multi-layered message, a mixture of the facts, a dose of philosophy and a library of mini-stories to engage and illustrate. You’ll discover a method of ‘mining’ the value of the experiences you have had, and how to use them to convey who you are and what you want to achieve.
Andrew will also show how to continually refresh your story library and develop the skill and confidence to weave stories into conversations in a natural and apparently improvised way.
Very few people do this well, so if you apply these principles you’re well placed to attract the types of opportunities you seek.
