04-27-21: Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller! Medical Writer Jobs, Webinars & More
Stories are at the foundation of how we communicate. Stories touch both the heart and the brain. The more we integrate the two, the better our recall. As a recruiter, my core competencies include the art and science of storytelling and public speaking. I love performing to connect with audiences. Business has embraced storytelling because it works.

Medical communication increasingly relies on medical writers to simplify the science of medicine. When we watch a video, listen to a case story, or engage in an interactive activity, we participate in a company's marketing message. Here's your chance to make a difference as a Medical Writer, Senior Medical Writer, or Medical Director. See specs below.

Catch me in action, sharing my stories and tips this Wednesday, April, 28th: "How to Work More Effectively with a Talent Recruiter." 90 min webinar presented by NSENG.

7 Techniques To Take Your Business Storytelling To The Next Level Now
High quality, comprehensive storytelling training for a team isn’t cheap. Even a half-day workshop can cost over $10,000. And after the company pays for the training, your team will still need to continue to take time to practice the lessons learned to make the investment worthwhile.

Whether you’re in the process of searching for the right trainer, debating whether you should invest in one, or have just worked with one, you will want to encourage your team to practice.

1. Practice Choosing the Right Story at the Right Time
A leadership story must be more than just a “good story.” Yes, a riveting story is the baseline, but it also has to meet two other criteria:

a. Your audience has to know right away why you are telling it.

b. They have to feel something and do something about it.

Start with these two criteria when you’re searching for the right leadership story. Consider the change you want to see and find the story that inspires emotions that will motivate people to act.

How to practice this every day:
