Public speaking training series focused on the art of storytelling.

About this Event

Whether it’s The Gettysburg Address, “I have a dream” speech, or even the introduction of the iPhone, great presentations are also great stories. And like any story, there is a storyteller, someone who conducts the audience through the symphony of their story. This three session series teaches you how to create a story that connects with the ways our brains work, a methodology for designing those stories, and an understanding of how to present those stories and how an audience has read you before you’ve even said a word. Come to all three or the ones that speak most to you, as each session is designed to focus on one aspect of storytelling.

Session 1: The Mechanism of Story

Humans have been telling stories for thousands of years and although the technologies have changed, the basic structure of story remains the same. That’s because good stories connect with the way our brains work. This session covers the mechanism of good stories including: - What makes a story interesting - The Story Curve: The structure behind stories - How a story progresses - What to include in stories, what to leave out, and how to make the choice

Maurice Sharp, Facilitator

Maurice has been mentoring people in “soft skills” for over 25 years. These skills include designing and delivering stories to engage and mobilize teams, customers, and others. Maurice’s background includes over 6 years in theatre, where he learned the physical side of presentations, a skill he’s used to give presentations to audiences varying from just a few to over 5,000.
