Inspire Breakfast - Storytelling with Max Dickins
Thu 27 July 2017, 08:15 – 10:00 BST
What you can expect at the Inspire Storytelling breakfast:
Everybody talks about 'storytelling'. It's a buzzword. Something we're all meant to be doing (or think we do already). But how do you actually tell a story? How are stories structured? And what makes a story impactful? In this interactive workshop you'll find out. Plus, you'll learn storytelling skills to move your audience to action, whoever they may be.
3 things people can expect to take away from the session
1. Learn how to use stories to communicate complicated messages and data without jargon and without the dreaded 'death by power point'.
2 . Learn how to use stories to influence others, and persuade them in a human and authentic way.
3. Learn how stories make your messages more memorable and more likely to be passed on.
Max Dickins started his career as a radio presenter for Absolute Radio, spending two years behind the mic with his own show. He was nominated for a prestigious Sony Radio Award in the process. On the stage he works as a stand-up comedian, and his third solo-show ‘My Groupon Adventure’ was a sell-out smash hit at the Pleasance Courtyard at the Edinburgh festival in 2014. His first book, inspired by that show, ‘My Groupon Adventure’, was published in June 2016 by Unbound/Penguin-Random House. He has recently worked as playwright, with ‘The Trunk’, a funny and moving one-man play a critical hit at the 2016 Edinburgh festival with several 4 and 5 star reviews. As an actor and writer he has a myriad of TV and radio credits on both sides of the Atlantic, working with BBC2, E4 and Sky1 amongst others. He’s currently proud to be the presenter of ‘Voom Room‘ (Sundog Pictures), featuring news, gossip and great guests from the Virgin Media Business Voom competition.
