How to Use Stories in Presentations: 3 Tips

Making use of stories in presentations is always a good thing but not all presenters get to take advantage of it. Here are three more tips on how you can use stories in presentations.

1. Case Studies – if you’re presenting case studies to your audience, add short stories into it to make dull facts and abstract data more memorable. But keep the story short and concise by including only the important details.

2. Stories as Metaphors – when presenting unfamiliar ideas or technical data, you can use analogies and metaphors to make your audience better understand the whole concept.

3. Humorous Stories – Jokes may not be well received but personal anecdotes tend to be more acceptable.
