Are you using stories for business, a non-profit organization, a school or just for the next family party? Come get our latest book that teaches you to create even more stories from the anecdotes and “floats” (the little brother of anecdotes) that are everywhere around you. Your newly created stories will bring fresh life and energy to your gatherings. If increased profits or contributions are your goal, you cannot do better than to use powerful stories to meet those needs.
You have an expert in your corner! Author and storytelling coach Sean Buvala does not just preach about how you should use stories. While you will read stories used as examples, you will also experience Sean teaching you through stories. He’s practicing what he teaches.
“Some university should give Sean Buvala an honorary doctorate in storytelling…you’ll hit the last page realizing you know a huge bunch more about storytelling than when you started. And that, by my own estimation, makes this book well worth its minor entrance fee!”-Ken MacFarland
Note: This particular book is not about oral storytelling techniques such as pacing, gestures, eye contact and so on. Rather, this book focuses on the creation of real stories from anecdotes to be used in sharing stories (storytelling or otherwise) in education, business, health care or even with your own family.
