    A story does what facts and statistics never can: it inspires and it motivates. That's why expert storytellers are such effective communicators. They translate complex ideas into practical examples – and they know how to make emotional connections with their audience. Their message gets through because everyone can relate to a good story.

    An American master in the art of storytelling was Ernest Hemingway. His best work, as he once said, was a story he wrote in just six words:

    'For sale: baby shoes, never worn.'

    Whether you’re in business or the professions, you’ll benefit from learning how to tell a concise story that packs a meaningful punch.

    Take the challenge and post your own six-word story here and our team at GuruMaker-School of Professional Speaking will choose the three best. Winners receive a free autographed copy of the new release EXECUTIVE PRESENCE: The Art of Commanding Respect Like a CEO (McGraw-Hill 2010).

    Good luck!
