Learn the Power of Storytelling

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 | 6:30-8:30, San Francisco

Storytelling is the cornerstone of communication skills.

It is probably our oldest form of spoken communication, and remains one of the most emotionally powerful tools for capturing attention and being persuasive. In the workplace, storytelling comes into play in presentations, pitches, meetings, and in day-to-day interactions by increasing memorability, likability, trust, cooperation, and generosity. This highly interactive workshop is designed so you can increase your skills as a storyteller to be a more persuasive communicator in your organization. (no storytelling experience required)

There will also be time for Q&A and networking.

Sponsored by BigTalker, a professional development resource that helps teams build teamwork and communications skills.
