Our upcoming session is entitled “The Art Of Storytelling", A practical guide on how to tell stories to achieve your goals.
Outline of the session:
PART 1: Why are stories so important?
We kick off the workshop by going back to basics. We take a look at key definitions and how stories are central to the way people communicate with each other. Stories surround us each and every day, and it’s a great way to exchange ideas, purpose and goals.
1. What is a story?
2. Stories make the world go round.
PART 2: Let’s get practical: How can you tell a compelling story?
Once we have established definitions, we are going to sink our teeth into what it takes to actually tell a story. This includes everything from pinpointing your target audience, to actually setting up the structure of your story, and how to add the right amount of salt and pepper to make your story stand out. To make sure you leave this workshop really knowing how to tell your own story, we are going to have a hands on approach, where you will be constructing a story all together with the instructor.
1. Know Your Audience
2. Set Up Your Narrative Arch
3. Capture Your Audience
4. Be Yourself
PART 3: Now it’s Your Turn! Tell Us a Story
In the final part of the workshop, you’ll have a chance to tell a story yourself. You will participate in a series of exercises that will help you get you one step closer to becoming a storyteller, and achieving your goals.
