This session is designed to give you a competitive advantage when seeking to; inspire a team, convince a customer, or motivate an investor. Whilst data and technical information is important when interacting with others, a well told story can make the difference between fully convincing someone to buy a product, use your company, or invest in your business. This session will combine key storytelling theory, as well as the opportunity to put storytelling techniques into practice.
Why this should be of interest?
In an ever more challenging business landscape, any competitive advantage needs to be fully utilised. Storytelling opens the emotional, decision-making part of the brain in a way that raw data, statistics and product benefits cannot. The ability to be able to tell a relevant story to compliment your aims, maximises your chances of success and gives you a tool few people fully utilise in business. As Steve Jobs said; “The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller”. This workshop will enable you to tell stories effectively.
What you will gain, learn, explore and create?
· Understanding the importance of storytelling as a communication tool
· Realising that stories enable people to “buy into” solutions in a way that data cannot
· Knowing the structure of a successful story
· Appreciating the skills needed to tell a great story
· Trying out some storytelling techniques
· Receiving feedback on your storytelling skills & how to improve them.
