What you'll learn in this storytelling class:

Storytelling for Business People: Presentations to Elevator Pitches

Not all pitches are created equal. You may think you’ve got a unique product, service or business idea but if you can’t tell a compelling story, your message will get lost in translation. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use stories and narrative techniques to capture the attention and interest of your audience.

In this workshop, you'll gain knowledge of the different types of stories in business before delving into techniques for becoming a more confident presenter. We'll end the session with a pitching exercise that will give you the opportunity to put your newfound storytelling skills into practice on a real world business problem. By the end of the session, you’ll have a polished pitch and a set of tools for getting people excited about your business.

It was an applied session that provided new methods and grounded insight to adjust my approach customers, presentations and 2 minute pitches differently. I liked it so much I’m probably going to take the course again to keep the practice alive!

Andrew was a great instructor and has a gift of teaching with applications and exercises during the class that were interactive, fun, and practical. He was able to explain the relevancy of storytelling across many presentation types and explain how it works across different communication forms. Super informative, thanks Andrew!

I learned more from this single-session class than I ever did during 8/10 session-classes. It was wonderful! Even though it was on a Monday night, Andrew was energetic and motivating. He moved quickly through the information and was a natural and engaging public speaker. He had video examples that he shared with the class that were very helpful—it was great to see the materials actually being used in practice. The class size was smallish (enough to fit around a conference room table), and he divided the class time into instruction and fast-paced storytelling/pitching with partners. I very much plan on taking more of Andrew's classes in the future.

Reviewed by Anab A. on 10/1/2019
Great class- gave me a new perspective for creating elevator pitches. I’ve taken pitch classes before and the heavy emphasis on storytelling was a welcomed lesson. Instructor was animated (overly so but he said he was highly caffeinated) which for the most part was fine but a bit jarring at times. Finally, I loved the one on one work- though it would have been easier if we were instructed to use the same narrative/story throughout the night. Ie first prompt was “tell a story of ...”, the next prompt “ok now tell another story where...” which caused some confusion. Overall I would recommend
