Stories work. Stories build rapport with colleagues and trust between team mates. They attract investors, convince clients and spread the message.

By examining the psychology and structures of stories, you will learn how to improve your writing and presentation skills whether it's to pitch an idea, a product or start-up.

Far too many business books promise the earth yet deliver little more than your own backyard. This book will catch you by surprise, teasing the reader with a promise to improve your presentation and writing skills but ultimately delivering a priceless toolkit that will transform the way you think, operate and influence others in business and beyond. Andreas Loizou pours a lifetime of personal experience and a dollop of mischief into a book which will become essential reading for anyone wanting to make their mark.
Writer extraordinaire Andreas Loizou marries the secrets of good storytelling with the ethics of good business practice and, in doing so, makes a difficult thing look very easy. Oh, and it's funny, too. Kerching!

Stories help us make sense of the world. They bind us together. You can use them to change hearts and minds, to sell services or products, to turn people from casual listeners to raving fans. Full of concrete examples from ads, films and tales we all know and recognise, this clear, easy to understand book will show you how to tell your story with style.

The best, most practical and creative book on how to bring our writing, presentations and communication alive to engage our audiences. What I love about this book is it's clarity - helping us see not only what to try but why, without unnecessary padding or fluff. This book practices what it preaches. It is beautifully written, draws us in and gets to the point. It is well designed and easy to navigate. Above all it is inspirational - motivating readers to up our communication game - whether we are novices or experienced and think we know it all!. Highly recommended.
