Storytelling for Entrepreneurs
Tuesday February 25th , from 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Marie Perruchet, International Storyteller and Communication Specialist
Stories have a unique power to appeal to our emotions, shape our beliefs and change our minds. In this class you will learn how to utilize storytelling techniques in business settings to persuade, motivate, raise capital, secure clients, and get press.
If you can’t explain your idea in a compelling way, your pitch can get lost in translation. This class will use interactive exercises, videos and constructive group feedback to teach you the framework to create your own stories and be an efficient public speaker, whether addressing large audiences, your customers, or your team.
