Inspiring with Story: Developing your Storytelling skills
“The purpose of the storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.” Brandon Sanderson
Improve your communication and learn how to inspire your colleagues with stories. Whether you’ve told stories before, want to develop your skills and confidence, or are hoping to tell your first story, this workshop will guide you through some basic skills to help you prepare and tell a story well.
Working with a traditional story, you’ll discover how to make a story your own and how to remember it without learning it word for word. You’ll learn how to develop conviction when speaking in front of others and discover some top tips on how best to tell stories.
Whatever your experience of storytelling, this workshop will help you to gain confidence in a supportive space with plenty of fun to encourage your natural creativity and storytelling potential.
