Storytelling is an intrinsic part of the human experience, dating back thousands of years. Much of history as we know it is due largely to stories being passed down through generations. There is nothing quite as compelling as a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. So how does this translate to the presentation space?
We will learn in today’s “storytelling special” episode of SAP Experts Podcast.
As always, my name Akshi Mohla, and I am a Senior Business Development Specialist at SAP S/4HANA Solution Management and Go-to-market; and you’re listening to SAP Experts Podcast.
My guest today is none other than, the Chief Storyteller himself – James Marland. James is a Global Vice President in the Centre of Excellence for Procurement at SAP. After being first exposed to procurement as a consultant at SAP he moved to the newly formed Ariba in 1998. With the acquisition of Ariba in 2012, he ended up back at SAP as a Vice-President of Network Strategy, uniquely with experience of procurement from both companies. In his current role he meets with procurement professionals to work with them on building the business case for SAP solutions. With the unofficial title of “Chief Storyteller” he tries to make a storyteller out of everyone through Social Media, new hire onboarding and mentoring. You’ll see him passionately preaching the procurement story of SAP to each new hire through his preferred medium of a whiteboard. He also contributes to the SAP story on social media, blogs and at events. Just don’t expect to see him using PowerPoint!
