    The art of storytelling and the ability to speak effectively in public is invaluable. and can be applied to a variety of disciplines. I did not know there were education programs in this field. It’s such a primary mode of communication, the basis of civilization, I think. I bet many take oral traditions for granted.

      Yes, they do take this whole thing for granted. There are so many levels of tellers out there..and the basic one is you and me. We tell the stories of our lives daily. Thanks.

    When you look at marketing you discover the greatest speakers and most successful business people know how to tell stories. As the immortal Bill Gove said, “Make a point. Tell a story.” The personal touch makes it real and drives home the point.
    Great post, stuart.

    I love story time> I think it the greatest time spent with one’s children. It sucks that t.v and gaming has taken over our family life. Books enrich the imagination and open a new world up to children and adults alike.
