Our brains are wired for storytelling. More ancient than cave paintings, stories have been used to pass and persist information throughout human history. A well-crafted story connects the listener to the teller, holding attention and driving action.
Studies show that stories sell. Neuroscience shows that stories stick. People talk in stories and so should business.
In a LORE storytelling workshop, you will learn about the story arc and the components that comprise a story. You will begin crafting a story that you can share with clients and prospective clients.
NOTE: It helps to have a story already in mind that you would like to focus on during the workshop. You do not need to create, write or practice the story, simply come with an idea of a story that you can work through during the workshop.
