Shawn Callahan is one of the world’s leading business storytelling consultants and the founder of the consultancy, Anecdote. He works around the globe helping leaders find and tell stories so their message is clear and memorable. Shawn is also the author of the new book, Putting Stories to Work.
In this chat with Trevor Young, Shawn explains how stories are seven times more memorable than facts alone, and provides tips as to how aspiring thought leaders can use storytelling to influence, engage and inspire their audience.
Shawn also discusses how blogging has been a key driver in building his professional profile (and business), and how he undertook the challenge of writing and publishing his own book.
