Your Stories Matter
You know how people who make their living through selling have this problem: they are frustrated attracting and closing clients.
From my experiences as a book publisher, ghostwriter, and best-selling author, as well as what I learned from being the president of a marketing agency that doubled revenues in five years and vice president for marketing communications of a $5 billion insurance organization that doubled awareness through storytelling, I show an audience in humorous ways how they can close more sales by persuading with their own client mess-to-success stories. To spread this message, I wrote the book Persuade With a Story! and speak to thousands of people each year.
“In Persuade with a Story! Henry DeVries does something brilliant. This simple, powerful book shows business leaders how to attract clients, audiences and followers by using effective storytelling. But that’s not the brilliant part – lots of us teach and write about the power of story. What Henry does that’s so special is to help you grow your business by focusing on the genre of your stories. By using Henry’s revelations about the Eight Great Stories we all want to hear over and over, you will greatly increase your influence – and your success.”
