Storytelling is a useful and meaningful tool for remotely communicating, influencing and persuading both your colleagues and key stakeholders. The ability to remotely deliver a story in an imaginative and memorable way is a hugely valuable skill and can help you to enhance, communicate, and verbalise your message with much greater impact.

This specifically designed virtual Storytelling for Business course explores and examines the stages and structure of storytelling that allow you to become a more effective online communicator.

Through the use of virtual breakout rooms, to facilitate interactive sessions in smaller groups, gain more engaging communication skills.

Led by Sandra Miller, this informative and informal virtual course enables you to virtually communicate with your audience in a more engaging and informative way. Through a range of theoretical learning and practical exercises, develop the ability to tell compelling stories that will leave a powerful impression whilst communicating online.

Through having your video screens on whilst presenting, you will gain expert feedback from our trainer, on how to best engage online.

Course materials and resources will be distributed online to aid your learning during day.
