Purveyors of Pixie Dust – How to Use the Magic of Storytelling to Drive Results

Summer Jelinek

Have you ever attended a meeting, conference, or educational event and when someone asks what you learned, you find yourself sharing a story from the speaker instead of a statistic? Do you love hearing the story of how a long-married couple first met? If so, you are living proof that as humans, we are hardwired to focus on stories. As a business owner, why does this matter to you? If you can translate what you do into a story for your client, or even better, use what you do to elevate their story, then you are tapping into the secret weapon used by many successful companies and entrepreneurs. Join Summer Jelinek as she shares her love and passion for storytelling; learned from some of the best companies in the world, including Walt Disney World, The Disney Institute, and H-E-B, to help you use the magic of storytelling to drive results for your clients. 

  • Understand why the most important part of the story is not the Once Upon a Time 
  • Learn how a consistent sprinkle of the story will enhance the client experience and keep them  coming back for more 
  • Receive specific examples on how the best story tellers are able to see a happily ever after that the Client hasn’t even imagined
