Here is a quick list of tips to help your storytelling skill:-

1.       Start your story in the middle. Life happens in chronological order. But your story doesn’t have to sound boring. Start your story in the middle where things are exciting and your story may capture the attention and interest of your audience.

2.       Give your audience what matters. Give 3 to 4 points and don’t cram unnecessary information in. Bring the key things to the top.

3.       Every story needs the 5Cs namely, circumstances, curiosity, characters, conversations, and conflict.

4.       Spark the emotional side of your audience’s brain. When crafting a story, Bates recommends thinking about what emotion you want to communicate and then provide information to provide the emotion.

5.       Your story should relate to your audience and contain no elements of bragging – as humans we relate to failures because we all are flawed. Your message is in your mess.
