Description

Storytelling is foundational to good communication skills and necessary to expand and promote business, government, or social/community events. We all have a story to tell and if we tell it well, we can inspire and motivate for results. In this six-week course, you will learn what it takes to become a compelling storyteller and how to apply it to your everyday life. Storytelling is instrumental to landing a job, for teaching a new skill, in giving a memorable wedding toast, for getting buy-in during a presentation at work or during a family meeting, and as an influencer on social media.  Each week, we will cover the basics and principles of our topic and then put it into practice so you will leave each class with a new storytelling tool in your toolkit.
