What is the Agenda for the Afternoon?
Introduction to Strategic Storytelling
Participants will learn the science of storytelling and see research that explains why storytelling is the most effective way to motivate your audiences to take action. We will also introduce them to Storytelling for Good’s interactive lessons, including the Narrative Framework and the Social Impact Story Map.
Through a combination of either individual or group exercises, participants will use the tools available on Storytelling for Good to begin crafting their own stories. During this section, facilitators will guide attendees to develop a compelling story-outline. We will also spend time reporting out the stories and discussing key takeaways as a group.
During the final section of the workshop, we will discuss practical ideas for using stories in external communication. This would include using stories during media outreach, on social media, and other mediums or channels that are important to your communications.
Mix and mingle with your fellow storytellers. Reflect on what you’ve learned. And have a drink and bites before you conclude your day.
