We're continuing our series on storytelling with this on-air coaching call episode about what stories you should select to include in your signature talk, whether it's a business presentation, a conference session, or, in this case, a keynote.

My guest is Marie Fiebach, who is a speaker and a regular contributor on her local TV station.

Marie is part of our Master Your Speaking online group coaching program and she’s been working on her keynote talk.

I invited her to come on the podcast to share with us how she selected the main story that was going to be the thread throughout her talk, as well as some of the other stories that she chose, including ones that showcase her credibility and her experience.

This is a fun episode! We cover a lot, from call backs that comedians like Whitney Cummings use, to adding props and funny memes, to incorporating music and songs in your talks.  

This episode is part of our Storytelling series, episodes 137-140.

 

About My Guest: Marie Fiebach has been working with non-profits for more than 20 years. Through her work in strategic planning and fundraising leadership, she has helped many organizations break through the status quo and achieve goals once thought to be impossible.

Marie has helped organizations plan and execute fundraisers with revenues in excess of $100,000, developed a food program for at-risk teens, designed and executed a process for recruiting and hiring a new executive director, and so much more. She currently sits on two local non-profit boards and is a weekly guest on KAKE TV's Good Morning Kansas. She lives, works, and volunteers in Wichita, Kansas. When she is not helping others dream bigger you may find her pursuing her passion for helping busy families at FeedYourFamilyTonight.com.

If you're sharing something personal in a presentation or a talk, you know that you should make it a story and include stories in your presentations in general.

What about if you're presenting on topics that are more data-driven or research-based?

You should definitely include stories as well.

My guest in this episode is Karen Corbin, PhD, RD, who's a scientist herself and has a company with a great name called Geeks That Speak® to inspire and empower scientists to become powerful storytellers.

Incorporating storytelling into their presentations is crucial, whether they’re presenting at conferences to peers or to the general public. 

Stories can help spark curiosity, give context to facts and data, and make the information being presented more memorable.

You don’t have to be a scientist to learn a lot in this episode. What Karen and I talk about applies to any topic.

This episode is part of our Storytelling series, episodes 137-140.

 

About My Guest: Karen D. Corbin, PhD, RD is the Owner and Chief Geek of Geeks That Speak® and an Investigator at the AdventHealth Orlando Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes. She is an expert in human nutrition and metabolism. Her scientific career is devoted to finding new approaches to prevent and treat diseases like diabetes and fatty liver disease. She is also an expert is scientific storytelling. After spending years traversing the worlds of healthcare and science, she realized that a fundamental gap exists for translating ideas into solutions: the common inability of scientists and other “geeks” to deliver information in a way that is impactful, relevant and inspires action. This led Dr. Corbin to an important conviction: by helping scientists translate complex scientific information in a way that is accessible to a broad range of audiences, she could help advance the innovation that will solve many of society’s most pressing problems So, she created the movement “Geeks That Speak®” to inspire and empower scientists to become powerful storytellers.

We’ve all heard to use stories in our presentations.

Stories make our content more interesting and memorable for the audience and can aid in learning.

What I’ve seen is that we’re good at providing a *summary* of the story.

But, what we’re not doing is *telling* a story.

What’s the difference?

5 key ingredients that will spice up your stories.

How do you go about telling a good story? Make it an I.D.E.A.L. story.

You know I love acronyms and alliterations, so I came up with the acronym I.D.E.A.L.

In this episode, we go through each letter - each ingredient - for a great story.

 

→ Download the free PDF with the I.D.E.A.L. story ingredients at https://www.speakingyourbrand.com/137.  

 

This episode is the first of our new series on Storytelling, episodes 137-140.

How can you increase leads and sales at your presentations? By asking for them!

Having a feedback form that the audience fills out is one of the best ways to generate leads, especially if you don’t feel comfortable making a hard sales pitch in your presentation or if the place you’re speaking at forbids “selling from the stage.”

Since I first started talking about the feedback form on this podcast in 2017, I get asked regularly which episode someone can listen to specifically about it.

I haven’t had one specific episode - until now.

In this episode, I describe what the feedback form is, what’s included on it, and how to use it.

And then you’ll hear from six women in the Speaking Your Brand community who have used the feedback form at their presentations and the results they’ve received.

Be sure to listen until the end - I have a bonus tip that you won’t want to miss.

This episode is part of our Money series, episodes 132-136.

If you’re ready to position yourself as a paid speaker as well as generate more leads from your speaking engagements, join our Monetize Your Speaking online group coaching program.

This is a 3-month online, hands-on program that will help you find/refine your unique topic, create your speaking page, packages and fees, optimize your LinkedIn profile, improve your current presentation to make it more sales-driven, and position yourself as a premium speaker.
