TRUE TALK: STORY-in-BUSINESS™ Seminar To Be Hosted In Los Angeles Thursday, Sept. 26 and New York Friday, Oct. 4
LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert McKee, Hollywood's most sought-after storytelling master, will teach the art of storytelling to business leaders this fall. His newest seminar, TRUE TALK: Robert McKee's STORY-in-BUSINESS™, empowers leaders and executives at all levels to enrich their persuasive talents and strengthen their business communication skills. STORY-in-BUSINESS™ launches in Los Angeles on Thursday, Sept. 26 and New York on Friday, Oct. 4.
What does McKee, the famously severe writing teacher, have to offer a CEO? "Beyond sales and bids, business leaders must master the purpose-told story for all strategic tasks, not the least of which is branding," says McKee, who is acclaimed for his success in teaching proven, effective storytelling techniques. "If you don't control your story and tell it powerfully, others will tell it for you with less than flattering results. Fair or unfair, stories shape corporate futures."
Robert McKee has tutored organizations as diverse as Microsoft, 20th Century Fox, Time Warner, Nike, and Hewlett-Packard in developing their narrative game plans. Portrayed by Brian Cox in Charlie Kaufman's double-Oscar®-winning film "Adaptation" opposite Meryl Streep and Nicholas Cage, McKee wrote the bestseller "Story" and his STORY Seminar students have won over 60 Oscars.
McKee affirms that highly successful companies have a story that everyone knows-from their customers to their call centers to their CEOs. "Story carries us beyond rhetoric into poetics, beyond intellectual influence to emotional involvement. Story changes how businesses work."
Every project, every product, and every action within a company can be informed by story to bring all involved onto the same page and compel them to act as desired. "The purpose-told story persuades...but much more. What do I gain if I change your mind and your reaction is to do nothing?" McKee has some powerful ideas about what major companies are doing wrong in the story department, how this can be fixed, and how story-when used well, even by a business-creates meaning in our lives.
The one-day TRUE TALK: STORY-in-BUSINESS™ Seminar will cover:
