Stories Are Good for Every Culture

In the course of my seminar I told a few stories to illustrate points.

I had told the same stories … when I lived in Japan. When I guest lectured in Russia. When I taught in Mexico. When I spoke in New York. (Not really a foreign country unless you are from California.). And California is a foreign country if you are from Ohio. And …

Learn to tell stories well and your listeners will go home happy. And so will you!
