Decker Made To Stick Messaging

Learn why some ideas thrive while others die. Improve the chances of your worthy ideas.

This one-day business storytelling course is designed in partnership with Chip & Dan Heath, authors of the best-selling book Made to Stick, and will elevate the effectiveness of an important pitch. Come with a pitch in mind, and work throughout the day to make your ideas stick with your customers, coworkers, bosses…and maybe even your kids.

In a fun, interactive environment you’ll actively work on your pitch it throughout the day as you’re led through the principles to make it stick. Then, see for yourself how you transformed your own idea with your before and after recordings.

Who should take this course?

This course is ideal for leaders, sales people, speakers, marketers, managers and professionals who must persuade and convince others to action.

  • Make data and numbers stick using the “human scale principle”
  • See how the six principles of sticky ideas can transform messages at all levels: from speeches to presentations to your very next email and phone call.
