Background Brief (Telling a Narrative)

Telling stories is an essential way we, as humans, connect with others. As a speaker tells a story, listeners make a movie of it in their mind. That’s why it’s crucial to include all the information listeners need in order to understand the story. This includes telling when, who, what, and where.
