Tell Your Story in Seven Sentences (or Less)

Posted by on October 15th, 2012 with 0 Comments

This month sees the release of “HBR Guide to Persuasive Presentations“, the third excellent book by presentation design goddess Nancy Duarte.

In this book, as in Resonate, Nancy shares my ‘Seven-Sentence-Story’ template. It’s a method that makes stores easy to write, easy to deliver, and easy to understand.

Here’s a free template for writing a seven-sentence-story.

The seven sentences are:

  1. The Opening
  2. The Context
  3. The Conflict
  4. The Proposed Resolution
  5. The Cliffhanger
  6. The Actual Resolution
  7. The Most Important Point (MIP)

In this video, I describe the template.

I’d love for you to post your Seven-Sentence-Story responses – as videos or in writing!
