Storytelling for Startups: How to use storytelling techniques to increase your impact in business and life
Whether you’re in business, tech, or marketing, telling a story is the key to increasing your impact in whatever you do. Learn how to use storytelling techniques to captivate people’s attention, move them emotionally, and inspire them to take action and tell others.
Learn to use storytelling to:
- define your brand
- pitch investors
- communicate an idea so people will share it and repeat it
I’ll start by presenting the best tips and tricks I’ve gathered about how to tell a story, then move into an interactive format with group exercises and a discussion on how to apply the principles of story to whatever you’re working on.
I chose WeWork because I want to help people use storytelling to increase their impact. Come on Wednesday and I’ll tell you what I know.
