Storytelling: Can you see it?

There is a form of storytelling that we watch, yes it is movies but we don’t do movies at work. Right ?

So, what do we do to  make people see what we are saying ? Is there a way to make that happen ?

Why the QR Code? The answer is in the request below we received from a regular blog reader.

"I attended your story telling course some time back. And I've enjoyed keeping up my knowledge with your blog. You may not have realised however, that the Whole of Government is implementing Internet Seperation. Hence I'm not able to access the links to read your articles. Could I suggest including a QR code in your emails so that I can use my mobile to scan it and gain immediate access to the article? It would be most helpful"
