Snackable Story Masterclass with Greg Satell - 256

Nov 30, -0001

A few times people have singled out one interview of mine as a great example of someone using short stories brilliantly.

That episode was 107, and it was with Greg Satell. Greg’s work has appeared in Harvard Business Review, Barron’s, Forbes, Inc and Fast Company, and he is considered one of the foremost experts on innovation today. Greg also speaks around the world on these topics and works with leading organisations too.

What I wanted to do in this show, was firstly to give you a practical structure you can use yourself, and then to illustrate using examples from this interview with Greg, how you can utilise stories in different ways as a speaker, and indeed a writer to engage and inspire your audience. 

I’ve put the link to the full interview with Greg in the show notes, and if you haven’t yet listened to that one, then I highly recommend you check it out next. 


What you’ll discover:

  • A short story structure you can use 
  • How to use a story to engage your audience with complex and abstract concepts. 
  • How to use a story to illustrate a problem and your solution. 
  • How to use a string of story examples to dismantle a myth and shift perspective. 
  • How to use a story to inspire action 
  • The importance of ‘show’, rather than tell. 
  • Why you need to grip the audience out of the gate
