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 online webinar, 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 webinar, you’ll have a polished pitch and a set of tools for getting people excited about your business.

The class was very interactive, and just what I needed in order to get started again. Thank you very much! It could, of course, have been better. But mostly because there always is room for improvement.

This class gave a good overview of the nuances of storytelling. The exercises reinforced how important it is to be in the moment, stay authentic, and share stories purposefully. I would recommend the class.

The instructor wouldn't allow you to take photos of the presentation slides or send the deck electronically which is bizarre since the class was paid for and usually you get to keep the content from which you've learned (the content itself isn't groundbreaking so there's no copyright/plagiarism to even be worried about). The instructor also told us to keep our phones out of sight which I understand, but we're all adults. We should be able to check our phones as there are no clocks in the space we were in and the session was quite long. The instructor went 20-30 minutes over the time the class was supposed to end which was inconsiderate. All in all, the actual lecture was alright (again nothing groundbreaking) but it could have easily been consolidated to a 1 hour course and priced at half the rate and administered more professionally.

Andrew was smart, funny, energetic and accommodating. I learned a lot and reframed my idea pitching. He packed a lot of information into a few hours and offered a short free follow up, which gives you time to digest the information. Great experience!

Unlike most such presentations, that try to jam in too much in a short time, the instructor completed his presentation (on time). Nice combination of instruction and demonstration (work groups) to back it up. real learning and takeaway.
