You often hear people talking about the power of storytelling. And it is true! But what does it mean? Storytelling is a way of using a visual storyline and metaphors to get your point across. So how does it work? Check out this speech from the 1984 Democratic Convention by Mario Cuomo. He uses a metaphor that Ronald Reagan created about the beautiful house overlooking the city and turns it into his own ‘tale of two cities’. Metaphors, visualization and a good story line make this key note address one deserving a place amongst the legendary political speeches.
