KEYNOTE: Telling Stories That Change Lives
Saturday, April 18, 2020 – 8:25 a.m. to 9:25 a.m.
All good stories are about transformation. Characters pursue their desires and face overwhelming obstacles in order to achieve them. At the ends of their journeys, they (and their loved ones) are safer, richer, happier, more loved and more powerful, or they are defeated, alone, lost or deceased.
But in the stories that touch audiences most deeply, these characters experience an inner transformation. In pursuing their goals, they move from fear to courage, from identity to essence – and in doing so transform those around them.
Join Michael Hauge as he reveals why stories are your most powerful tool for captivating your audience and moving them to action, and how adding these deeper levels to your stories will provide emotionally powerful experiences that have the power to change their lives – and your own.
PLENARY WORKSHOP: Mastering 6-Step Success Stories
Sunday, April 19, 2020 – 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
The primary goal of any story you tell from the stage must be to elicit emotion in your audience. And the source of that emotion will always grow out of our empathy with your story’s hero, and the conflict he or she must face while pursuing some compelling goal.
In this workshop, Michael Hauge will reveal how to select and develop the most powerful and persuasive stories for your speeches, and then guide you through his 6-Step Success Story™ process for connecting with your audience as you enlighten, entertain and move them to action.
WORKSHOP SERIES 3: Perfecting Your Story
Sunday, April 19, 2020 – 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
During this hands-on workshop, participants will put Michael’s 6-Stage process to work as he coaches selected participants to share portions of their stories. This will empower all attendees to sharpen their ability to achieve emotional impact, deliver a valuable message, and move audiences and sponsors to purchase their products and hire them to speak again.
