Learn the power behind stories from this exclusive training audio seminar from Rob Gilber. If you get up in front of an audience and start talking about your credentials, see how long it takes for someone to yawn and look at their watch. People are there to be entertained, so the quicker you get them to smile, the better.
And the fastest way to do that is with a story. Stories make everything better. It doesnât matter if itâs a speech, a job interview, an advertisement, a wedding toast, or just a simple phone call to your Aunt Bertha â if you add a story, you suddenly have an interested audience. And you suddenly become interesting. Itâs a very powerful thing.
But you canât just tell any story. Youâve got to tell the right story to the right people at the right time. And in this audio, youâll hear how to do that from a man whoâs been studying, collecting, and telling stories for more than 20 years, Professor Rob Gilbert. He says, when he meets a former student, itâs never the theories they remember from his class. Itâs always the stories. His story magic has made him unforgettable. Hereâs how you can use the power of stories too.

Rob says the biggest industry in the world is stories. We use them all the time â in movies, books, commercials, TV shows, newspapers, everyday conversation â and we instinctively look for them as we go about our day.
Thatâs why learning the art of storytelling will bring power to everything you do. And in this audio, youâll hear how to do it.
