Description

Influencing People With Business Storytelling
(One-day workshop including refreshments and lunch)

If you're looking for a new way to get people engaged with your business, this workshop is for you.

Attracting people to your business isn't an intellectual concept. People make decisions emotionally. They connect, not with what you're saying but with you and how you're talking to them. The most powerful way to talk about what you do is though storytelling.

Storytelling connects us with people. We're neurologically wired for connection and hence for stories. We show our vulnerability and gain people's trust when we tell stories.

People can then resonate and have confidence in us. Trust is a valued business currency and that's why storytelling is a must.

Join us for this one-day workshop and you'll learn the fundamentals of business storytelling and have the chance to create an engaging story for your business. Here's what we'll cover together;

1. Why storytelling is the most powerful way to connect with people in business

2. What kinds of stories you can tell in business

3. The structure of a great story

Then you'll;

4. Discover the seeds of a great story for your business

5. Craft your story seeds into an engaging narrative with a powerful message

6. Storyboard your story

7. Tell your story with impact so that you can engage, excite and even educate your audience

8. Discover ways you can weave stories into your communications.

The aim of the workshop is that you come away with a business story direction that you can evolve, polish and then weave into talks, conversations or written communications to tell people about how you and your business can help them.

Workshop Style:

Influencing People With Business Storytelling is a highly interactive workshop. We'll have short teaching sessions followed by a series of activities where you apply learning to create your business story with support from the facilitators. You'll be working in groups too which is a wonderful way to road test your story.

We ask that you download and read our free ebook The 12 Secrets To Influencing With Story before the workshop day. We'll also send you a short and simple pre-work exercise to prepare in advance.
