Today framework is called the story, moral framework. It's all about telling a story. And at the end of the story, there's a point there's a moral, there's something that we can learn from. And the moral doesn't have to be something incredibly profound that took us ages to think up. Because we don't have ages. It could just be something as small as an eye, I learned, I need to get up earlier.

Or I learned that it's important to eat healthy to stay, to stay fit, and well, whatever it may be, as long as it relates to your story, and it's something that we can learn from, or we can see that you learn from, then it's perfect. So before we try an example of a question that could use that framework, let's talk about today's delivery tip. When we're telling stories, what brings us story to life is the detail. We could tell a story in a very mundane and boring manner. Or we could say it was a crisp January morning, as the alarm bell rang, and I jumped out of bed that day, my life would be changed forever. So not giving people too much detail, but just enough that they can see the setting in their own mind.

Another thing that brings stories to life is dialogue. Have a couple of characters in your story, even if it's very short, and have one say something to another. And you can play around with accents. You can bring in your vocal variety, but it's dialogue that again helps a story to breathe and helps your audience to really get into it. When we have dialogue, often there's a reaction. Perhaps you're talking about somebody who had a bit of road rage And as he drove by, he threw his fist at me through the car window.

And then you might say my reaction. And it's, it's the reactions often that get laughs from the audience, because we've all been in those sorts of situations, and we can all sympathize or empathize. So don't be afraid to give a reaction. It could be as simple as just raising your eyebrows, or pausing for a moment, and looking surprised, but it's in the reaction where often the humor lies. Now, the final tip is this one, and it's to end with a bang. end with a bang.

Don't be afraid to have a big energetic ending to your story. Now, obviously, not every story ends like that. But in that moment where you're you're answering this question, don't be afraid to go to a place that's very energetic and lively. Because people often remember how you finished or how you closed, you can even either close with a Well, that's it. That's that's the best I could answer with. Or you could say, well, there we go.

That's the answer I'm going to give you today and I stand by it. And it's positive, powerful answer. With a good strong ending. Any audience will be satisfied or even if you're at a job interview situation, the end with a Well, I hope that's, that's an okay answer. I think we can all do better than that. So remember to end with a bang.

Now, on to today's exercises. The example question could be something like, what is your happiest memory? Now bearing in mind that we're going to try and tell a story I might start with my happiest memory was when I was seven years old. It was my birthday and for months and months, I'd been asking my mom to buy me a certain kind of dole, you can go into the detail. And I've been looking at that shop window for ages looking at that dawn. Saints were monkeys, please.

And then on that day, yes. One of my gifts was that particular doll and you know what, even through into my teenage years, she was so important to me and I just kept it on my desk until University. One day my friends were in my room And they started playing football with the doll and she got broken. And my response, I mean, I said to them, what are you doing? That's my most precious possession. And they looked at me.

Are you mad? You're 21 year old woman. What are you doing with adult? Right, you can do better than that. But nevertheless That's the story there. There's a little bit of dialogue.

There's some reaction, there's some vocal variety. Time for you to go for it. So today is the big one. Four minutes. Hope you're ready. Here's your question.

Your question is, what advice would you give to your younger self? You've got four minutes. Tell us a story. Amazing. Well done for answering that question. Four minutes is a really good amount of time to be able to speak.

If you're a Toastmaster. You may be may have never even spoken for four minutes before in an impromptu speech. But hey, it's all good practice. So don't feel limited to the three minute framework. Now it's time for some more questions. To try
