More on the workshop
The Powerful Communication Through Purposeful Storytelling workshop offers an interactive program that highlights the power of purposeful storytelling. Purposeful storytelling is at the core of powerful communication for different purposes: leading, teaching, persuading, selling, influencing ...etc. The program starts with a four-hour interactive seminar that lays down the foundation of communication through storytelling and is followed by 8 weekly sessions of practice. Storytelling has been around as a major tool of communication for thousands of years, yet many organizations (both academic and non-academic) do not realize nor utilize the power of storytelling within internal and external communication. Research and anecdotal evidence continue to reveal that authentic stories (when narrated well) get results that other means of communication do not. Narrative communication offers interest, engagement and increased comprehension; it creates a goal-oriented platform within organizations and instigates loyalty and action among stakeholders.
