- if the story has no relevance to your message then why are you telling it?
- if you provide a personal story to illustrate your values then please make sure it connects with the audience at the time (please update and avoid repeating)
- when you use PowerPoint to tell your story there seems to be a dissonance - the method is not matching the intent
As a method of influence, especially for large scale change, stories work well because they contain the emotive meme that a PowerPoint presentation usually lacks. So let's use stories, but let's use them advisedly and with care.
