What does it cover?
Why Storytelling? Human-beings are wired for story. We retain information in more detail and for a longer period of time when it is delivered as a narrative. When communicating a message, storytelling techniques such as logic flow, delivery variation, individualisation and metaphor can make all the difference. This will help enhance day to day presentation and communication skills.
