When speaking to groups, one of the sure-fire techniques that you can employ to be effective is the use of stories. Stories have intrigued humankind since our earliest days as cave dwellers.

Davidson, who has also written fifty-six books, uses his own signature story about the time he saw Katherine Hepburn in a play at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, to illustrate the points he makes. The result is an enjoyable, practical, informative program that will inspire you to begin using stories with your audiences, so that you can reap the associated benefits.
