This class covers the basics of storytelling for performance. It is perfect for dipping your toes into storytelling waters for the first time, or a quick brush up on your skills if you’re a seasoned pro.

The class consists of exercises that will help you identify and refine a story. Everyone will get to practice telling a story with a partner, and a few volunteers will get the chance to perform their stories for the full group and receive in-depth feedback from their instructor and classmates.

90-minute Storytelling for Business Master Class with Instructor Cyndi Freeman of The Story Studio

This class covers how and why storytelling is an invaluable tool for communication in business settings. Participants will be guided in applying the principles of compelling storytelling to communicate more effectively on the job. Brief lectures and hands-on exercises focus on bringing an emotionally resonant arc to brand biographies, personal anecdotes for professional networking, and vision-into-action stories. Whether it is used for talking about important projects, selling a product, selling oneself to a client or hiring manager, crafting stories for grant proposals, or talking to the press, storytelling is a tool that helps people deliver important messages in a way that is clear, compelling and memorable.
