Audiences love stories! The experience we have while listening to a great story is a thrill to our senses. Whether they are in a book, on the big screen, or being told in-person, stories capture our interest, give us great examples of what we should and shouldn't do, and help us gain better perspective. Great stories can inspire and, ultimately, transform us. This course goes over the foundation for magnetic stories, the types of stories you can create, and the elements that will keep your audience engaged. Whether you are in sales, the front office, marketing, or just want to improve your skills, you will learn how to use stories at the right time, with the right purpose, and for the right audience. You might not quite be ready for your first TED-talk but we will definitely have fun discussing ideas to improve your storytelling abilities.
