Storytelling for powerful presentations - in-house

“The best way to unite an idea with an emotion is by telling a compelling story” - Robert McKee

Storytelling is what makes us human; it teaches us how to live, how to imagine the impossible. Neuroscience has now shown we are hardwired to respond to story.

Great Presentations need skillfully told stories to arouse audiences’ emotions and energy and to leave them with a lasting message.

Story enables people to reflect, imagine and create new thoughts. As human beings we survive and develop through story. Story Creation for Powerful Presentations course looks at all the tools and techniques used for thousands of years to create compelling stories to engage your audience.

The workshop is aimed at anyone who has to influence others through presentation or public speaking. Participants will learn the specific skills to write and deliver great stories. 

Whatever the size of your audience, this course has been created to give you the skills to take people on a journey that will stay with them.

We explore the process of taking factual, analytical and data driven information, often found in dense presentations, and look at many different ways to communicate that information so that the listeners have an emotional response to what it all ultimately means.

Before we begin working with you we like to have a conversation about your role, needs, expectations, your current challenges and most importantly what you hope to achieve from the course.

Story creation courses are designed to equip delegates with techniques to:

  • Understand and use story structure.
  • Turn data to meaning.
  • Harness the power of disclosure.
  • Use effective metaphors and analogies.
  • Understand narrative.
  • Create meaning.
  • Appreciate story themes.

This course explores how great stories work and can be retold to reinforce our understanding of any idea, however complex. It’s no accident that the film, television and the publishing industry continue to thrive whatever the economic situation. It’s also why we gossip; we are making stories to live by.

We know that skills develop with time - that's why we continue to support everyone we work with after the training has finished. We see it as part of our commitment to the ongoing development of each person as a presenter.

Whether it's uploading a recent presentation and asking us for further insights and advice, sending through a new slide-deck for design help or just seeking out further reading material - we will always be just a phone call or email away for advice.

At Edison Red we stay with you.
