Storytelling has always been at the heart of great presentations. A professional speaker worth his/her salt must be able to tell stories that resonate with their audience. These are the stories that impart wisdom, instruction, education, entertainment and so on, but where do these stories come from? And, how do they evolve over time?

On this special episode of the Social Pros Podcast, Jay announces his brand-new podcast, Standing Ovation. Standing Ovation is the show where the world’s leading professional speakers tell the stories of their stories. Each episode features a famous signature story from a professional speaker, followed by a close analysis of the story including answers to questions like where did the story come from? How have they optimized the story over time? And, what tips do they have to share to help someone become a better speaker and/or communicator?

Whether you’re a professional speaker, somebody who gives a lot of presentations at industry conferences or someone who wants to improve their communication skills, you can learn a lot from Standing Ovation. So, if you’re keen to know more, have a listen to this episode of Social Pros, where you’ll get to hear the first ever episode of Standing Ovation featuring Hall of Fame keynote speaker, Scott McKain.
