Storytelling for Business course

Storytelling for Business course

Spark imagination and inspire change by using story to convey messages at work.

Human beings are hard-wired to tell and receive stories. Research has shown that we retain information in more detail and for a longer period of time when it is delivered as a narrative.

On our Storytelling for Business course, you will learn fundamental storytelling skills and explore ways to apply these in a professional setting. Using both imaginary and real-world content we will look at how to use story as a powerful tool to lead teams, communicate change, drive growth and capture the imagination of your audience.

Working in a small group and led by an actor and business coach we explore the value of story, how it works in a neurological sense, the key components of a story and practical performance techniques for delivering a story with flare.

By the end of the course you will have a set of tools that will enable you to construct and deliver a story with impact.
