We understand story. We know how to find it, even when it seems like there are none to be had. We know how to look beyond the obvious, to find narrative in data, and figures, to see the magic in the mundane. And we know how to deliver it. We know how to command and sustain attention, how to make the listener lean in and remember, long after the story is over.
These group sessions will give you the strategies and tools of effective storytelling and train you to apply them to your current initiatives. Choose from workshops lasting two hours, a half, day, or a full day. For the best effect, we recommend no more than 15 people per session, although we can adapt several of the workshops in to a hour-long talk which can accommodate larger groups.http://storystrategies.net/wp-admin/edit.php
