The ability to tell a good story is one of the foundations of professional speaking. Stories can be used to build connection , illustrate key messages and inspire your audience to action. But how can you create better, more memorable stories that will allow you stand out amongst a sea of other speakers? And how can you transform your old favourites so that they become more engaging, less predictable, and appeal to more people?
Attendees will learn:
- How to use alternate narrative structures that make any story sound fresh.
- Theatrical techniques that add tension, believability and humour to make a story more magnetic.
- How to use immersive language to create a virtual reality for your audience
