In a previous post I wrote that storytelling should be included in the cruise ship speaker’s toolkit.
In my next series of posts, I’d like to dive into reasons why I think so.
Storytelling is Simple Yet Powerful
The number 1 (not in priority but in order for me to write) reason is storytelling is simple.
My 7-year old loves when I read to her at night. But there is something else she loves even more.
“Daddy, tell me a story.”
“Uh, I don’t really have one right now, sweetie.”
“Then tell me the story of your day.”
She genuinely loves to know how I spent my day. Who with. What I did. Why I did it.
Everyone Loves a Good Story
People of all ages love a good story. The story will help them relate, to identify with you, the speaker.
People will think, “Yup, been there, done that.” Or, “Nope, never was that stupid.” Or, “Hmm… Never thought to try that out.”
And storytelling is easy to do.
Start at the beginning and keep going till you make a point.
Tell Good Stories
Remember, however, if you have to tell people what the point is you want to make, then you didn’t tell the story very well.
The best told story leaves your listeners pondering in their minds what you just said and coming to conclusions on their own.
