Veit Etzold Speaking Topics

Human beings are born storytellers. But we don’t use our ability often enough. Even though our brain prefers to hear stories than to process tiresome litanies of facts. Stories have helped us to survive for thousands of years. That’s why the bouncer in our brain lets in the stories and keeps dry PowerPoint presentations waiting outside.

Good storytelling, however, is not a matter of luck. Dr Veit Etzold can show you how to use the storytelling toolbox to successfully sell your products and ideas faster, better and more sustainably.

The trinity of storytelling for the 21st century business:

Storytelling and Change
Only a strategy that comes with a good story will be understood and implemented by your employees. Storytelling makes your company’s change initiative a success. Because: STRATEGY + STORY = TRANSFORMATION

Storytelling and Sales
Unlike classic “hard sell” techniques, storytelling does not try to “push” something into the customer’s head, but uses the “pull” principle: Your customers hear a good story about your product; they realise that they need just this product and no other. Because: TO TELL IS TO SELL

Storytelling and Content Marketing
Especially in the digital world, where the competition is just one klick away, customer journeys and hero and villain stories are key to differentiate your business and get eyeball attraction. Because: CONTENT AND CUSTOMER IS KING
