“Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today.” ‑ Robert McKee
Simply put, facts tell, stories sell. Whether as an individual or a company we are simply an accumulation of our stories. Business guru and writer Dan Pink summed it up nicely when he said “Most businesspeople describe their dreams and strategies — their stories — just as they’ve been doing it for decades: stiffly, from behind a podium, and maybe with a few slides. Call it Corporate Sominex ®.”
Learn to go from Sominex ® to Red Bull ® by becoming a storyteller. Take your business to the next level by using the five Cs of business storytelling. During this workshop we will brainstorm, role play, and, of course, tell stories about the effectiveness of using creativity, content, being a connector, collaborating, and knowing your community.
