These are both worth checking out:

The first reveals how Russell Goldsmith, CEO of City National Bank in Los Angeles, has created a culture of storytelling in his company. Since stories are memorable and emotional, this enables both employees and customers to build stronger relationships with the business. There are also some good insights on interviewing and hiring at the end of the interview.

The second article offers advice that many presentation designers have been sharing for years (but that still needs reinforcing): tell a story, use pictures, avoid bullet points, issue a clear call to action. I’d argue that the author’s fifth point–don’t use more than 10 slides–is unnecessary. While you don’t want to use any more slides than necessary, placing a limit on the number of slides is arbitrary.
