Workshop Description
Uncover the Secrets to Using Body Language to Transform Your Storytelling Impact
Two of Europe's leading experts on storytelling and body language, Eamonn O'Brien and Stefan Verra, are joining forces to deliver a masterclass workshop on 'How to make your stories an experience audiences will remember.' 

Great storytelling is at the heart of great speaking, but not any story will do. In this workshop, you will learn the secrets of Body-Told Stories.

If you'd love to move up a level from being an ordinary or even a good storyteller to a master storyteller, this is a must-attend session for you. You'll learn the techniques master storytellers use to instantly boost the impact of mediocre or seemingly Meh stories (turning sows' ears into silk purses), to transform audience experiences through small changes in your body language, and to leave a memorable impression on all who hear and see you. 


About the speakers

Eamonn O’Brien is the founder of The Reluctant Speakers Club – where he has helped thousands of business leaders to speak with unprecedented clarity, persuasion and confidence.

In addition to being one of Europe’s leading authorities on business storytelling, he’s also the author of 'How to make Powerful Speeches (which is now required reading in many US law schools)', a co-founder of #GoDoVideo, a recent President of Professional Speaking Association Ireland, and an award winning blogger and vlogger on ‘how to speak memorably’.

And his podcast is included in the list of top 100 small business podcasts by Small Biz Trends.

Stefan Verra is one of the most in-demand Body Language Experts in Europe. With great humor and scientific insights, he fascinates 50,000 plus event participants every year in 13 countries within 4 continents. 

He actively involves participants and gets them “up and running” – using live interactions, they get to try out and discover what he is talking about and reach their own conclusions about the power and impact of body language when telling stories. 

He is a keynote speaker, guest lecturer at several universities, best-selling author and well-known interview partner within mainstream media. 6,000 social media fans watch his tips.

We will have tea and coffee on arrival with networking, between 6.30pm and 7pm, and a light meal at about 8pm. The evening should wrap up at about 9.30pm and for anyone who can stay a small while there is often a little more networking at the end.
