Join Michael Margolis for a discussion on his new book, Story 10x: Turn the Impossible Into the Inevitable
Ideas don’t sell themselves. Similarly, the data doesn’t speak for itself. You have to get your story straight. Especially if you’re leading disruption or hyper growth. It’s easy if there’s shared agreement in the room. It’s a lot harder when you have a complex vision that challenges the status quo. Address the invisible forces of resistance. Overcome your message being lost in translation
Whether you’re trying to sell a vision, raise money, inspire the team, recruit top talent, or humanize the product roadmap — it all comes down to the narrative. Learn how to communicate disruption without putting people on the defensive. Michael Margolis is a leading storytelling expert and advisor to Facebook, Google, Uber, Hulu, and NASA. In this session, Michael will share insights from his latest book: Story 10x: Turn the Impossible Into the Inevitable, relevant to anyone building a tech-enabled future.
Attendees will learn:
Why all great leaders have to be great storytellers
The 90% Test: How to quickly get an audience on your side
3-step narrative structure for any disruptive pitch/presentation
