4 keys to unlocking the persuasive power of narrative

By Michael McQueen

Seen in every culture, used throughout the centuries and understood from even the youngest age, stories are a powerful tool for teaching and learning.

Well, the short answer is; there are no hard and fast rules. Yes, there are guidelines and some definite no-no’s, but even then, I have been known to go against the grain many times, because that was right for the client.
