Keynotes and Presentations: Based on my years as an ocean adventurer and my experiences as an entrepreneur, StorySailing™ keynotes, workshops, and presentations reveal the power of stories and storytelling to inspire business transformation.
What will happen if the GPS dies? Do you trust your compass? Is your story authentic—deep enough to keep your customers on-board and your business afloat? Are you ready for the next storm? Is someone watching out for icebergs? Does your team know your destination? Set sail with Dave Bricker to explore how stories resolve conflicts, communicate authentically, build stronger relationships, and add meaning to your work.
Entertainment is all well and good, but a speaker should produce measurable value. Each program is customized to address your organization’s challenges, goals, and culture.
StorySailing™ presentations are offered as short, TED-style talks or as a 45-60-minute keynote address.
Writers, speakers, professionals, and visionaries learn to find, polish, and share their stories.
I encourage my presentation skills coaching clients to join Toastmasters. It’s an excellent leadership program for anyone at any level. For professional speakers, it’s an ideal place to try new material in front of an audience of mostly professional people, and it provides opportunities to mentor emerging speakers. The icebreaker speech (above) is the first speech in the Toastmasters Pathways program.
And of course, nothing engages an audience like humor.
