Discover storytelling in our course and learn the five stories you need to be able to tell

Storytelling is something humans have been doing for as long as we’ve existed. Around a campfire with friends, at the dinner table with family, by the office coffee machine—stories are a powerful tool, even in the workplace. Because stories are instructive, they connect people, and with the right presentation, they can be very persuasive.

With a well-chosen story, for instance, you can warn people by sharing your own mistakes and errors. Others can learn from them.

Make your voice heard by participating in the storytelling course
When you participate in this course or a workshop at our company, you have your own goals for storytelling. Perhaps you want to excite stakeholders about a new service, get employees on board with merging two departments, overcome resistance to the acquisition of a new company, or inspire colleagues about the direction of the department. These are all moments where it is important to use and tell a story. You don’t just want to tell any story; you opt for a personal and inspiring story that you present with great strength. That’s what you’ll learn in our storytelling workshop.

In our storytelling course, we work with small groups of up to eight participants who undergo training together to learn how to tell stories. This way, we create an environment where everyone can experiment optimally with creating and telling their own story.
