YOUR MESSAGE IS MORE THAN JUST A STORY
It's a work of art
Unlock the messenger
I provide a heady elixir of the science of persuasion, storytelling, behavioral design, and leadership combined with experience from the stage. I weave Western principles of success with Eastern wisdom without being woolly. But you can probably already feel that in your first chakra… I use comedy, music, and gastronomy as sources of inspiration and metaphors to share insights into the power of communication.
This means you get the following::
The golden gun
It would be quite the ego boost if I were to write that I have the keys to guaranteed success. Sadly, this isn’t the case. Professor Hans Hoeken of Utrecht University and his colleague Daniel O’Keefe of the North Western University worked on a meta-analysis of dozens of review studies on communication message design for three years. Their most important conclusion? There is no golden ticket to success.
This conclusion is in line with my experiences. During my training courses, I always see that the design of stories is important, but stories only take off and speakers only start to make an impact when they really start to carry that message themselves. All the tools, structures and tricks are ‘inward looking’. It is about your guts and urgency as a speaker. You are the golden gun that shoots magic bullets, or techniques, if you will. I don’t focus on the ‘outside’, but on making sure you believe in your story and dare to be vulnerable, so that you can become bulletproof..
THE SEVEN words of the messenger
Setting down a powerful message starts and ends with you. It is an intensive, creative process. In my opinion, most persuasion techniques and modes of storytelling are only effective if they come from you and correspond to one of the 7 words: ‘The Seven Words of The Messenger’. This means that something has to already be or happen within you. A good story does not just fall out of the sky, but you take it for yourself. All seven words begin with a C - do you believe in coincidence?
