Your audience is bored: The antidote is to tell a story

The Future Of Work - The Remote and Hybrid Office

We live in a society where technology is abundant. At the office, you couldn’t walk by a coworker’s desk without seeing their phone, tablet, and computer surrounding them, all with different notifications pulling their attention. In this digital age, how can you ensure that people are not distracted by their devices? When you present either virtually or in-person — whether in day-to-day meetings or formal presentations — it can be difficult to know what your audience thinks of you and if they’re paying attention. Luckily, there’s a tool you can use to engage and captivate your audiences: storytelling.
