Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth. - Rumi

CERTIFICATE PROGRAMME
Empower with Storytelling - 4 Months Weekend Programme

Overview

Since time immemorial, people have told stories. Storytelling is a 3000-year-old communication tool. We painted on cave walls, carved pictures into trees, sorted images out of rocks, sang songs, danced, told stories ... the best of those stories being passed down from generation to generation.

What are those best stories and how are they created?

Whatever your goal, whether to initiate social change, educate, train, make a sale, or make a friend, the people who are best at it are the ones who can tell a story that makes you sit up, listen, and understand. The best storytellers' messages are heard. People are wired to respond to stories. Unfortunately, there are good ways and bad ways to tell stories – and if you tell stories poorly, you'll lose your audience's interest.

So how do you tell a good story while communicating?

Some of the biggest leaders, trainers and educators have used storytelling as an important tool to connect every thought, intent and an idea across the boundaries. It knows no differences of time and economic status. it connects with all. What exactly makes a great storyteller? And how can you become one is the journey we will travel with you in this program.
