// About this workshop //
Storytelling is the most powerful tool available to make ourselves more memorable and our ideas more appealing to others. Our brains are literally wired for stories. In this session we’ll explore how leveraging storytelling at work is a key business skill that can propel you towards greater success -- through more engaging presentations, more cohesive marketing and branding, building faster rapport with clients, and quickly on-boarding stakeholders with your project/ vision.

// Who is this for? //
This workshop is ideal for small business owners, managers, start-up founders, consultants, and freelancers. It’s designed for people who’re regularly required to speak about themselves and their work (particularly networking and public speaking).

// Takeaways //
• The science behind storytelling (and how it relates to business).
• How to structure stories and leverage them to bring information to life.
• Four secrets to maximising your memorability when presenting.
• How to generate stories from your life and spark genuine rapport with anyone.
