Business Whisperer & Corporate Raconteur

raconteur / ˌrakɒnˈtəː

noun

a person who tells anecdotes and stories in a skilful, exciting and amusing way.

"a colourful raconteur"

synonyms: narrator, teller of tales, spinner of yarns, relater, recounter;

The art of being a raconteur is different than other chroniclers of the past. Unlike a historian or journalist who is bound to facts and evidence, the raconteur instead is a master artist who concentrates on the aesthetics of the story and the emotions it evokes in the listener. To hear a raconteur tell a story is like listening to a virtuoso musician skillfully playing with tempo and dynamics. He or she knows when to hold back details that do not add to the story and how to exaggerate the ones that do. Yet the raconteur never hopes to deceive the audience. Rather he or she has a tacit understanding with the listener that a poetic license is allowed, provided that any embellishment will never depart so far from the truth as to become fiction.
