People like to learn through narrative. The earliest writings were stories. The most successful politicians tell stories. People get paid more when they can stand in front of a group of people, take technical ideas and put them into story format. Salman Rushdie dates out of his league. There are so many reasons to improve our storytelling ability. When we can tell stories well, we become more than ourselves. We become unlimited and more attractive.
The storytelling workshop will help you learn a charismatic and effective way to tell a story.
- You'll learn proper pacing so that your listeners will yearn for more.
- Connect with your listeners.
- Make people hang on your words.
- Create dynamic stories that stimulate your listeners senses.
- Build emotional attachment to yourself as a character.
- Use humor to bridge social gaps.
- Stimulate the imaginative parts of your listeners brains.
- Inspire, entertain, attract, enrich and create rapport.
The Workshop experience: We begin with examples of storytelling greatness and talk about what makes each story work. You'll learn the fundamentals. We then construct stories together as a group before moving on to individual storytelling. You'll practice telling impromptu stories to the group and receive personal advice on how to make your stories better.
