Has anyone ever enjoyed a session of Death by PowerPoint? If your sales reps are still focusing on speeds, feeds, and other dry factoids during client presentations, chances are high they’re not delivering a message that resonates.
While facts still matter and need to be communicated, a more compelling approach is to weave them into stories that hold your clients’ attention and truly engage them.
Stories sell better than facts, it’s that simple. When we listen to stories, we use more complex areas of our brain; we engage our emotions; we find it easier to remember content and data, and we stay focused. We’re all people and we all like a good story.

Roger P. Gimbel and Gail Gimbel, of Gimbel & Associates, have established a new scholarship fund honoring Hy and Audrey Gimbel. The Herman L. Gimbel and Audrey M. Gimbel Memorial Scholarship Fund, will be part of the Xplor Member Scholarship program, which offers financial assistance to Xplor members and their immediate families who are pursuing careers in the electronic document and communications industry.
Hy and Audrey are the parents of Roger and Gail Gimbel of Gimbel & Associates. They were pioneers in the printing industry, opening their first printing business in 1942. Recognizing early on the need for on-demand copies of business documents in the 60’s, they were one of the first to develop the concept of quick copy centers.
