Course Overview

‘In our digital world, “storytelling” has become a marketing buzzword, but many marketers, business leaders and brands have failed to grasp what it means to tell a compelling story and the power it can summon.’

Bryan Adams – Real Business 2016

 

This two-day Storytelling course has been designed to move away from spreadsheets and statistics in order to highlight the quality of our brand or, in the case of a charity, to inspire compassion and generosity.  After all, if bullet points worked, all advertising would be in bullet points.

DAY 1 UNDERSTANDING THE ART OF PUBLIC SPEAKING

09:30 - 10:00 Coffee & Course Objectives

10:00 - 11:00 What is the objective of the speech?
By focusing on what our objective is and who our audience is, we will be better able to structure the speech for maximum impact. Part of our preparation should involve profiling our audience. Are they still in education, in industry, part of a social group, retired? This is important if we are to make our speech relevant to them.  We also need to consider how we will build the story to keep them engaged.
