How to find a good story to tell to your Cruise Ship Audience

Cruise Ship Speakers are Storytellers

Cruise Ship Speakers are Storytellers

There is one good story line that everybody loves.

Find it, embed it, superimpose it, tell it to your cruise audience’s content.

The source of the story – When did something go wrong? In your life? In your business?

Comedy and drama both thrive in this sort of scenario.

It looks like when everything went wrong for whatever reason to whomever. I almost ALWAYS make myself the butt of jokes and the goat in dramas.

The problem, source of trouble, can be little or big things. Create a list of everything that has gone wrong. For me, it’s a shorter list to go with what’s gone right. But that’s a different issue.

Let your listeners know what the problem was – my car got stolen, on my way into the church for my best friend’s wedding, I stepped in dog poo, everybody got mad at me when I cleaned their stuff out of the dirty fridge … and so on.

Then wrap the story up.

It doesn’t have to be a happy ending if it isn’t. And can be a ‘to be continued …’ ending.

Tell good stories. Use tried and true methods. Let your presentation be a story if you are really bold. That’s much harder to pull off. But, it’s great form when you do.
