Title: Storytelling lessons from Bill Cosby
Context: There’s all types of storytelling out there, but the stories that make you smile – or indeed laugh – are generally the best kinds.
Synopsis: Want people to remember your presentation? Tell them a story. Want them to tell other people about your presentation? Make them happy. And the happiest stories tend to be true. And real. Bill Cosby is certainly a master of the genre but his style not unattainable. The key to any successful story is to be authentic. People respond to authenticity and the best part of being authentic is that it doesn’t require you to be anything outside your own memories, thoughts and personality. So, be like Bill: be yourself.
Best Bit: If you have kids, the bit about brain damaged children is frighteningly prescient. If you don’t have kids, lucky you.
