The course modules

The course is delivered across online training videos, worksheets, and online interaction.

To kick-off, we want you to understand why storytelling is such a powerful business tool and what you can achieve by using it. Module 1 will walk you through the WHY, explore each type of story you can use and how to identify the right type of story for different scenarios.

Wondering where you can find your own stories? In Module 2, learn about where they come from and how you can find them to build a story library for your key ideas and messages. You’ll also look at the latest trends in business storytelling and why they are so influential.

Holding your audience’s attention from start to finish is critical to the success of your persuasion. In Module 3, you find out how to construct an engaging story using our magic formula as well as how to to use analogies and how to create a link between two seemingly different things.

In Module 4 we share with you the fundamental techniques for your delivery and how you can seamlessly weave stories into your business presentations for greater impact. Learn how to captivate your audience and compel them to feel, think and act differently with your message.

It’s time to start writing your story! For Module 5 you can put everything you have learned so far into practice using the worksheet to construct a persuasive business story.

Let’s take it up a notch. For your final Module, we widen the scope by exploring the key elements of storytelling mastery. Delve deeper into the craft and learn how you can build a bank of stories that will enhance your influence and engagement in business.
