What Makes a Story so Powerful? Public Speaking Tip
By Patricia Fripp, CSP, CPAE
My brother Robert Fripp and I were rehearsing our presentation for the Golden Gate Breakfast Club December 2011.
The speech was called “Everything Begins with a Love Story.” I told the audience of how our parents met and fell in love and about our joy of hearing this story when we were young, and now as adults. The brilliant Robert Fripp said “Sister, do you know why you are so moved by this? It is because by reliving the story while told the event itself continues to live in the experience of the storyteller and the audience. We grew up in our parent’s history and it became part of the living present.”
Now you realize Robert Fripp is a very brilliant and thoughtful rock musician! The speech went down amazingly well.
