Have you ever told someone about a project or idea and left feeling that you could have done better?
The missing ingredient could be something quite simple: story.
Storytelling is a hugely powerful way of conveying complex information in a succinct way. Human beings are hard-wired for story – it’s how we make sense of the world.
Storytelling skills are universal skills relevant for PR, Sales and Marketing teams to Finance and Project Management teams and more. Any team that needs to distil and convey dry information, leave a lasting impact or engage an audience will benefit from a tailored course on this topic.
Neuroscientific research shows us that we retain more information when it is delivered in a narrative framework. This explains why so many businesses are looking to the arts to upskill and improve their storytelling abilities.
If teams don't understand the storytelling process and how to convey a message effectively, their objective is vulnerable to being misunderstood or forgotten entirely.
At City Academy, we tailor Storytelling workshops to suit business and team objectives. We’ll work closely with you to design a course that provides your team with the practical tools they need to convey information in a captivating way.
The course – delivered at a time and place to suit your team - will be led by an experienced actor. Actors have a wealth of skills for telling engaging and powerful stories.
City Academy has delivered Storytelling workshops for a wide range of teams from Thomsons Online Benefits, The View from the Shard, Fitness First and more.
The art of storytelling is to tell a story that your audience will find engaging, which is why it's important to understand who you're engaging with and how to adapt your story to suit. At the same time, you will need to build in key pieces of information and leave your audience with memorable images and emotional hooks to re-engage with the content long after they have left. At City Academy, we teach you how to create a captivating story that your audience will remember.
