We tell each other stories to understand the world and the people around us.
Stories also provide a powerful way to make connections with others and for people to remember and retell a meaningful message.
This course teaches you how to harness the power of storytelling and incorporate it into your working life. We will examine the recognisable patterns in stories, and how these patterns bring meaning and engagement.
Using exercises from performance training, we will practice using the classic story structure to present information, as well as exploring other common narrative structures. Strategies for ‘hooking in’ and persuading your audience will also be explored.
