'STORYTELLING' WITH RON DONALDSON
Storytelling is such a wide ranging discipline that it is often avoided or ignored as something just for entertainers.
However in the last twenty years it has been increasingly adopted and refined as an effective business tool.
This day of participation, reflection and learning will introduce you to some of the most useful methods and demonstrate by way of case studies, exercises and stories on how you can use storytelling to your advantage.
Ron Donaldson (formerly of English Nature) has almost 20 years of teaching, facilitating and applying a storytelling approach and will share with you his lessons learned, hints and tips and how best to apply these insights in different scenarios.
Learn storytelling techniques and templates that will help you to:
- Create an action plan by story-boarding the major barriers and necessary actions to overcome these;
- Maximise understanding, enthusiasm and buy-in for an idea/solution in order to "sell your story" for change;
- Improve your communication skills (especially presentations and conference sessions) using a range of tried and tested templates.
The day will include exercises and the opportunity to try out these techniques in a safe-to-fail environment.
