    Collapse Advanced Storytelling and Persuasion Skills (Philadelphia, Simulcasts, Live Webcast)

    Examine the essentials of storytelling

    The best lawyers agree: without skilled delivery, the soundest arguments fail. In this entertaining and compelling program, David Mann focuses on the goal of persuading juries and engaging witnesses by presenting complex material with the ease of conversation. Using past masters as examples, learn how to use vocal inflection and body language to tell the story between the words.

     

    Engage the jury rather than simply presenting them with facts

    Mann will provide you with tools for powerful, engaging presentations, incorporating role-play of opening statements and direct/cross examination. He will also expose you to sound methods for more complete depositions, stronger closing arguments, and more illuminating client interviews.

     

    Incorporate persuasive storytelling into opening statements

    Communicate ideas clearly, with persuasiveness appropriate to the material. Construct powerful stories that illustrate critical aspects of the case. Translate complex legal jargon into plain language.
