Telling stories at BAFTA (part 2)

(post by Andrew Thorp)

I was privileged recently to speak at the International Referral Conference in London, and given my long-standing interest in cinema and storytelling, it was wonderful that the event was held at BAFTA – the British Academy of Film, Television & Arts!

I’ve split the presentation into 3 chunks, highlighting certain themes in each so you can select what might interest you most. The theme of the conference was ‘Dare, Dream, Do & Deliver’, a suitably stirring title for a most inspiring location. The audience? Mostly accountants and lawyers from around the world.

In this 2nd section, I explain:

  • why the USP (Unique Selling Point) is such a misnomer,
  • explore the psychology of storytelling,
  • how organisations can benefit from sharing stories INTERNALLY, and
  • introduce THREE types of story which have practical application in business.
