Get to the Heart

How movie storytelling secrets can make your presentation clear, compelling, and earn you a seat at the table

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


If you work with corporations, Get to the Heart will help make your presentations clear and compelling—so your stakeholders take action and provide you with what’s needed to make the difference. 

It's storytelling in a form that truly works in corporate environments, because it's based on the approaches movies use—being quick, visual, and emotionally affecting. But instead of focusing on video production, it's a step-by-step method tailored specifically for the strategic projects on your desk right now, with full-color case histories, videos, audio files, and examples that bring it all to life.

There’s also a website at where you can engage with author Ted Frank and other strategic story directors, so you can dig deep into the book—and truly Get to the Heart.

Storytelling Matters

Get To The Heart tells a story of, well, storytelling in such a clear and easy to read way. I’m in the research and strategy industry and there are so many details I could relate to throughout. Yet, the story isn’t just ‘relatable’, it provides a unique perspective on how to leverage storytelling in an impactful way - that benefits both myself and my clients. It doesn’t hurt that it is also a fun and interesting read. I know I’ll come back to time and again - plus its a great excuse to revisit some classic movies as a bonus.

Every marketer needs this book

I know the title of this review sounds a bit overly promotional, but I really can't recommend this book enough for anyone who has ever stood in front of a crowd and tried to get a point across with data-rich information. Ted is a master at synthesizing complex information into visually compelling messages that stick with an audience. In this book, he’s laid all his secrets bare, in a detailed, comprehensive, and visually compelling way. And, with a twist of matter-of-fact wry wit that makes it enjoyable to read. Whether you're a CEO speaking to investors, or a research director presenting results of a new study, this book is essential if you want your message to be heard and have an impact.
