What you'll learn in this storytelling class:

Storytelling has been a buzzword in business, sales and marketing for a few years – what makes a story a good story though? Whether you are telling one in the meeting room or the bar with friends, engaging stories are impossible to ignore, and boring, drawn out and highly detailed stories are exhausting.

A good story should come in a package – there needs to be a hook, drawing your audience in, a point – it can’t ramble into the abyss! – and there needs to be a solid ending – it doesn’t have to be a happily ever after, it does need to end. This class will focus in on the basics of good storytelling, with an emphasis on telling stories in a confident and engaging manner. Students will learn tips to craft effective stories for personal and professional environments, workshop potential stories (you’re welcome to bring one in!) and leave with personalized feedback on your own storytelling style.

Great class and a super nice group of participants. For two hours it was great. I probably would have given 5 starts if we had added time to dig into our personal challenges with story telling.

Such a fun class! Most of what we 'learned' about storytelling wasn't new information, but practicing it was helpful.

I’d suggest a retitle for this class to “Improv Games + Public Speaking Practice Session.” We played a handful of improv games (one called Pass the Clap, yet no one laughed). The biggest storytelling lesson was “stories have a beginning, a middle, and an end” and the we told a story to the group for 2 min. There were no strategies for telling better stories or constructive feedback given after. I do not recommend.
