As we shift almost entirely to virtual communication, millions of people globally are adjusting to a new online presence. Whether for an executive meeting, a sales conference or a virtual presentation. With no face-to-face communication, no stage, no body language, and no live audience, it’s almost impossible to be charismatic.

Storytelling in an entrepreneurial context means, first of all, to wrap your company’s message in a vivid story, a story that attracts attention, arouses emotions and creates curiosity. It’s not about describing your products or services but about conveying feelings and messages. Every decision we make connects with an emotional response to the product or service we’re purchasing. The more our potential customers connect with your company on an emotional level, the better they identify with you; the longer you and your business will stick in their minds.

Stories merge information and emotion, allowing the audience to envision themselves in situations, including getting closer to you as an entrepreneur. It’s through your story that audiences feel your message first-hand.
