Description

Creative Storytelling: How To Create And To Tell A Good Story

workshop with Dimitar Uzunov


“Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me the truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever” - Native American proverb


“The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. The storyteller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation to come” - Steve Jobs


The art of storytelling is essential. Humans are story-driven creatures. We need stories to convey meaning, values and hopes. Human knowledge is based on stories and the human brain is a sort of cognitive machine necessary to understand, remember and tell stories. Stories mirror human thought, as humans think in narrative structures and most often remember facts in story form. Neurologists confirm that when a human hears straight data, only the language parts of our brains work to decode the meaning of this data. But when we hear a story, all the parts of the brain that we would use if we were actually experiencing that story light up and become active.


This 3-hour intense workshop will give the participants practical tools on how to create a good story and how to tell it in front of a life audience in a compelling and touching way. Through games and exercises the workshop participants will develop specific skills and ideas of what is successful storytelling. Workshop participants will work on their stories. Each one will create an original and engaging 3-minute story at the end of the workshop.


The workshop is designed for people working on their own personal story for artistic purposes, for advocacy or personal development, and to people working on a story for professional purposes – to become better leaders and influencers.

The number of participants is limited to 10.
