“The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. The story-teller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation to come” – Steve Jobs
WHY STORYTELLING: The art of storytelling is essential. Humans are story-driven creatures. We need stories to convey meaning, values and hopes. Human knowledge is based on stories and the human brain is a sort of cognitive machine necessary to understand, remember and tell stories. Stories mirror human thought, as humans think in narrative structures and most often remember facts in story form.
WHAT TO EXPECT: This 3.5-hour intense workshop will give the participants practical tools on how to create a good story and how to tell it in front of a life audience in a compelling and touching way. Through games and exercises the workshop participants will develop specific skills and ideas of what is successful storytelling. Workshop participants will work on their stories. Each one will create an original and engaging 3-minute story at the end of the workshop.
WHEN: May 19th, 2019, 16:00
WHERE: Museum of Decorated Bread (Ploumisto Psomi). 9, Grigori Afxentiou str., Limassol, Cyprus
FOR WHOM: The workshop is designed for people working on their own personal story for artistic purposes, for advocacy or personal development, and to people working on a story for professional purposes – to become better leaders and influencers.
