Storytelling

ENGAGE PEOPLE THROUGH STORYTELLING SO THEY LISTEN TO YOU, UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, AND REMEMBER KEY MESSAGE AFTERWARDS

 Why should you do this course?

There are no excuses for business presentations being boring and unimaginative, but to be a good communicator you not only have to be articulate, you also need a compelling story.

This training course is designed to teach business people how to tell engaging business stories. It will delegates understand how to structure a story for a chosen audience and occasion, to write presentations or scripts that better articulate and more powerfully express what they want to say, and will help them tell their story so it is clearer and more memorable.

In writing a good story, it isn’t enough to know what you want to say. You also need to carefully structure a story, so the audience can follow what you are talking about. It is also essential to think about language, as words and ideas need to be understood, and be appropriate for the occasion.

This course has therefore been designed to teach business people how to tell engaging business stories. It will help them understand how to structure a story for a chosen audience and occasion, to write presentations or scripts that better articulate and more powerfully express what they want to say, and will help them tell their story so it is clearer and more memorable.
