Effective Storytelling

Effective Storytelling

Harnessing the power of stories

with Dragoș Bucurenci

Do you speak at a conference and you would like the audience to remember what you talked about?

Do you want to convince your colleagues to be more involved in a project important to you?

Do you have a job interview and you want to make a memorable impression?

Want to get funding for a business idea?

Do you need advocates for the development strategy that you propose?

Do you need to sell an idea, a service, a product?

Do you often interact with journalists and you want your message to get through them to your audience?

The answer to all these questions is quite simple: tell them a good story!


WE ALL TELL STORYES - BUT NOT ALL ARE EQUALLY GOOD

People communicate most of the time through the stories. Everyone enjoys a good story. Stories spark emotions and capture people’s attention and imagiantion.

But not everyone is a good storyteller. Many of the stories we tell are ill-formed, go-nowhere tales that bore and sometimes antagonize our audience.

This storytelling workshop will give you the tools you need create stories that keep your audience engaged and help you deliver your message in a compelling and entertaining way.

True stories well told can influence the people you work with and shape the organization you are a part of.


STRUCTURE OF THE WORKSHOP

The workshop is primarily a space for exercise and experimentation. Theoretical concepts are introduced by means of examples and role-playing, and the greatest part of the workshop is devoted to group exercises.

Some of the topics that we cover during the workshop:

What is a story and what is not.

"Hero's Journey": the structure of any success story.

One-minute stories: how to tell a story in just 15 words.

In their own words: how to tell a story understandable to everyone.

How to transform a presentation/ project/ CV/ business plan into a story.

Not all stories are equal: the ingredients of a captivating stories.

Your story: how to have a memorable entry in any context.

The story goes on: how to become a better storyteller in everyday life.
