Overview

Storytelling is a useful and meaningful tool for remote communication to influence and persuade your colleagues and key stakeholders. Through compelling storytelling, reinforce your organisation’s mission and engage both your staff and audience through a clear vision.

The ability to remotely deliver a story in an imaginative and memorable way is a hugely valuable skill. It can help you to enhance, communicate, and verbalise your message with much greater impact while allowing your organisation to stand out and grow more resilient amidst challenging times.

This specifically designed virtual Storytelling for Business course explores and examines the stages and structure of storytelling that allow you to become a more effective online communicator.

Led by Sandra Miller, this informative and informal virtual course enables you to virtually communicate with your audience in a more engaging and informative way. Through a range of theoretical learning and practical exercises in breakout rooms, develop the ability to tell compelling stories that will leave a powerful impression whilst communicating online.

Course materials and resources will be distributed online to aid your learning during the day.
