I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
There is nothing like it!
No matter where you present…
Or, to whom…
People of all diversities
Connect to stories.
And every story is more powerful
When the conflict of that story is
Excruciating…because we all know
That eventually that conflict will be resolved.
Without conflict there is no drama…
Without conflict there is no resolution.
Think about your favourite movie or book?
What was it that made you keep watching?
Or, made you turn the page?
It was the conflict!
Certified World Class Speaking coaches suggest that
If you really want to connect with your audience…
1. Identify the Kind of Conflict
Person vs. Person
Person vs. Society
Person vs. Nature
Person vs. Himself/herself
2. Establish the conflict early
As soon as you have introduced your characters
Throw them into battle.
3. Intensify the Conflict
It’s not enough to establish it – you must intensify it!
Build up the conflict to the point where something’s gotta give!
Do you remember on the Titanic…
The water level kept rising
and rushing down the halls of the ship until
people had to make life-changing decisions?
Watching the movie, we were riveted because
We wanted to see who would survive that horrible situation!
So the question is:
“How will you intensify the conflict in your story
To such a point where something must give?”.
Don’t be afraid to share your stories, and
If you really want to make a connection…
Ramp up the conflict!
