A day of getting your story right, bright, and getting it to work for your business. For entrepreneurs and professionals.
Storytelling is an essential art in modern business. The ability to condense and communicate what you really need to say can make the engine of your business run so much more smoothly. At the same time storytelling can help you deepen your understanding of what you do and help you organise your communications as well as your general business activity.
In this full day workshop you’ll not only get massive amounts of storytelling practice and “upskilling”, you’ll also dive deep into motivations for doing what you do and learn to apply them to a target audience. You’ll also learn the relationship between developing a core story and your own communications strategy.
In brief, you will learn,
- How to structure and perform a great story
- How a story can organise all your communications from web pages to social media to speaking and pitching events
- Develop your own story with expert feedback
- Gain public speaking confidence in a safe supportive space
In addition you will be invited to join the Storytelling Learning Group, a community of constantly improving entrepreneurial storytellers based at the Hub in Amsterdam.
Your facilitator Simon Hodges has developed this workshop through his travels over land and through business all over Europe. With a background in corporate communications at Philips and performance storytelling, he is an official storytelling coach for the speakers at TEDxAmsterdam and the Hub’s 60-day acceleration programme. His joy comes from helping new stories be born, and seeing people develop through their stories.
“I loved the workshop. It helped me a tremendous amount to reinforce the story on what I want my business to be. It has helped me to clear away some of the distracting details and go back to the very core of what drives me and my business. It has helped me find the foundation that allows me to tell and retell my story easier and in a much more powerful way.” Max Kloosterman, Dream Team Dynamics, workshop participant
This will be a significant day in your business and personal development investment that focuses on clarifying, refining and adding to your current storytelling skill.
