202: Which Story Do I Tell? [Story Assessment]

On this week's episode of This Moved Me, neuroscientist Carmen Simon shares her tips for speakers to help them create talks that audiences remember.

Which is the right story to tell?

For some people, the idea of telling our “origin story” - or, the story that shares the origin of your idea or business - is pretty simple…

But for many of us, there are dozens of stories we tell that support our idea and business… and depending on the audience or context or the point that we’re trying to make, we might be unsure of which one to tell. Which one will be the most engaging? Most resonant? Hold the most potential for impact…

And let’s be honest: not all stories are great stories to TELL. We are made up of millions of stories… they happen every day, all around us…

WHICH IS THE ONE that will support your idea? Which is the one that will most authentically share not just about the brilliance of your business, but WHO YOU ARE, so that the audience feels connected to you and wants to learn more?

On this week’s episode, we talk about how we can assess our stories BEFORE we dive into developing and creating them.
