‘We know that stories are fundamental to how we learn, share and remember ideas but what makes for effective storytelling?
In this session we cover some common elements that make for a good story such as timing, relevance, narrative arc, journey, language and terminology, audience, relate-ability and call to action.
We also breakdown some different forms of storytelling from myth, fables, visual storytelling, personal anecdotes, impact stories, written vs verbal, and even micro-storytelling. We walk through the advantages and challenges of using these varying methods and learn how to use the right story, at the right time, for the right outcome.
The goal is for participants to build their storytelling skills to effectively support their work, community engagement, social change, or even dinner conversation.’
