Storytelling is a proven technique used by authors, journalist and thinkers which can have a dramatic impact on the way you and your organisation communicate. This course shows participants how to move beyond data, ‘facts’ and information and harness the power of ‘Storytelling’ in order to become more efficient and effective in all their communications.
This course is for anyone who prepares and presents arguments, recommendations and conclusions – either for themselves or their organisation (all levels from Director downwards). In addition, this course is for those who present data or research who will find it particularly.
Participants will be able to think, speak and present data and information in stories and not catalogues. They will be able to put together an engaging story, form developing insightful content to writing stories that flow and are succinct.
