Description

Few techniques, if any, are as powerful as a story. A story penetrates the brain and persuades it in a way that simply is astonishing. In your organization, you have lots of stories, but probably not in a collective form and unlikely to be optimized. In this workshop, we do just that. We gather your team, give them a deeper, scientific understanding of why storytelling is so powerful, then provide them with the basic building blocks and secrets of how to optimize a story and deliver it. Then we ask everyone to develop their own stories as they would tell their customers. The participants will be sharing their story, they will be optimized through guidance from the workshop teacher. In the end, they will also learn how they deliver it.

The last moment occur later after the workshop – when we will “wash” and optimize your story even more, “washing” meaning that we make them even more professional. You will then receive them back in printed versions, nicely formatted and ready to be shared to everyone in your organization or even to your customers.
