Watch this funny TED talk video and see how Dave Lieber teaches how to tell your business stories most effectively to increase profits, performance, communication skills and employee retention. Dave is a high-content speaker, motivational in tone and style.

The hottest trend in business today is emphasizing the power of your perfectly-told stories. How do you find them? How do you tell them? How do you get audiences to care?

Most businesses struggle to get their story out. They preach to the choir through journals and industry publications but lack specific tools and understanding about how to get the message out to the world. Even the best business storytellers can improve.

If you've found Dave Lieber's page here, you already know that facts and bullet points are not enough. You know that stories must be compelling, unforgettable, funny and smart. Stories bring out yearned-for passion and emotion. They offer attraction and engagement. Stories show why you’re special. You know this. You're ahead of the game. Now it's time to share this with your people.

WHY YOU SHOULD PICK DAVE: Dave doesn't just talk about business storytelling. He does it every day. He writes two columns a week for Texas' largest newspaper. He's a playwright whose play is a huge hit in Texas with more than 30 performances and now on a statewide tour. He sells thousands of books every year. But that's not why you should pick Dave. He's fun and funny, reliable and memorable. And unlike most other speakers, he'll get to know your business so well before he arrives that his help and ideas are customized not only for your industry, but drilling much deeper with a focus on you.

Kevin York of Instron Corp. says: “I never anticipated the great response I got from my colleagues after Dave's one day session with us! I was taking a risk committing to “storytelling” as a training investment. It was a novel approach that could have turned out to be a real disaster.

“To my pleasant surprise, Dave was entertaining, a great communicator and a determined teacher. He helped us bring life to our company's value propositions as well as enlighten us on what makes our company special.

“On the many sales training investments we've made, Dave Lieber is truly a standout! We're putting Dave's training to use every day.”

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT — Newest book by Dave Lieber: Dandy Don Meredith — The First Dallas Cowboy

In early 1960, there were no major league sports teams in Dallas-Fort Worth. No Texas Rangers. No Dallas Mavericks. No Dallas Stars. And perhaps most importantly, no Dallas Cowboys.

It is difficult to imagine the region without big-time sports, especially since the Cowboys today are valued at close to $9 billion, named the top sports franchise on the planet and world famous.

When in 1960 rookie quarterback Don Meredith walked into the Cotton Bowl as a member of the new team he had no idea that he would lay the groundwork to create what has become the most prestigious job in all of sports. Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.

While most star Cowboys wrote their memoirs, Meredith, who played for nine years, never told his life story.

That left an opening for author Dave Lieber to write the first full-length biography – Dandy Don Meredith – The First Dallas Cowboy.
