Introduction of Ed Tate's Workshop:  The Story Finder: How to Create New Stories in Minutes!

'You are either Remarkable or Invisible.' - Seth Godin, author of the book: Purple Cow


Most presentations are invisible, boring and forgettable. They lack original material. If it's not the PowerPoint Parade (one forgettable slide after another), it's the Data Dump (one mind-numbing statistic after another). The only statistic people care about during this type of presentation is when will it end!

Discover how to be remarkable with your own content by creating your own original stories and separate yourself from the crowd.  Hear and diagnose Ed's award-winning remarkable stories.  Practice Ed's 4 Elements of Effective Story Telling.  Learn 15 different ways to creatively introduce your ideas.
