The Four Elements of Compelling Storytelling with Sheridan Voysey

Few things engage an audience more powerfully than a story. Tell a tale and people will lean in, read and watch longer, become emotionally engaged, and be moved to action.

Story works across all media because story is the language of humanity. In this seminar we will explore the four elements of compelling storytelling. These elements work for a 30-second commercial, a 60-second radio link or a 6-minute interview, right up to feature articles, keynote talks, documentaries and books.

Media Ethics - Facilitated discussion - facilitated by Sally Bundock (BBC newsreader and journalist) and Rev Christopher Landau (CofE priest and former journalist)

In this facilitated discussion, we cut right to the heart of why Christians in Media exists, and ask the question why is it hard to tackle the challenges we face as Christians working in the media industry? Which ethical dilemmas do we face on a daily basis and how should we approach them not only as people of faith but also people who want to be good at our jobs?

10:30am | Tea and coffee break

10:45am | Session stream #2 - choice of two
