Mobilize the power hidden in the company’s stories
A two day workshop for you who want to learn the craft of storytelling and obtain tools for construction strong stories.
How do you sell and idea? How do you instill trust, engage an audience, make people remember? One thing is certain; not by facts. People do not need more information – people need something to believe in. We believe in what we see and storytelling is a proven method of creating images and giving life to the abstract. A good story creates meaning in a buzz of logical reasoning. A good story is convincing; tell a story!
Communicating through storytelling is deeply rooted in human nature. For millenniums, we have been trained to listen, learn and remember through stories. Storytelling is a way of visualize what we want to communicate – stories evoke images in our brains that arouses emotions and cause facts to stick. Good stories engage us.
Before the workshop you will select a few areas that you want apply storytelling in. In the workshop you will detect and develop a story that you can use in your communication in meetings, presentations or in writing. We analyse the stories and reflect on how they can be used to strengthen brands and trademarks, build relations and communicate mission, visions and goals of an organisation.
