Of late I have been talking to several colleagues about new business first principles. These conversations made me think it was worth making this presentation available. It was a session I would run with senior new business leaders, often as a prelude to a workshop, to garner their views on what it takes to win.
I hope you find it of value Get in touch if you wish to debate any of these ideas

STORY THOUGHTS – Use every opportunity to share
If your instincts tell you that people would like to hear your story, share it, use an event or internal session to share your stories. Have a couple of stories in your top pocket – people will remember you through your stories.
STORY THOUGHTS: Mix it up
Use different ways of communicating, different materials.
It does not have to be PowerPoint all the time.
How about using the flip chart to tell your tale?
My last big pitch for business was on three sheets of A3. The company following me had forty-four slides.
Choose a story that will matter to them.
Put the listener at the heart of the story and what they want to hear.
Applicability is everything.
People by from people like themselves and people they like.
What stories are colleagues sharing?
What stories are being told on TV or in TED talks?
Make a note of the narratives you’ve enjoyed – in you story ‘bank’, that you can draw upon for inspiration.
Think of something you have to communicate today, perhaps a call or a meeting or one-to-one conversation.
Then consider what metaphor, analogy or personal story could you use to bring it to lift!
