Presenting to Engage: The Power of Storytelling

Power of Storytelling

    Course fee


Telling stories is a fundamental human trait – it helps us to understand ourselves, others, and the world around us.

This course teaches you how to harness the power of storytelling and incorporate it into your working life. We will examine the recognisable patterns in stories, and how these patterns bring meaning and engagement.

Using exercises from performance training, we will practice using the classic story structure to present information, as well as exploring other common narrative structures. Strategies for ‘hooking in’ and persuading your audience will also be explored. The afternoon session will end with individual work on presenting your story with clarity and impact, with personalised feedback for increasing your skills and confidence.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of storytelling and why we use them so often
  • Learn how to apply these storytelling techniques to the work environment to engage with and persuade your audience
  • Practice grabbing your audience’s attention from the outset, as well as employing different narrative structures to deliver your message effectively

Presenting to Engage: The Power of Storytelling is led by fully qualified Voice and Communications Trainer. Group sizes are limited to 10 participants to ensure maximum impact and individual feedback. The course will run 10am - 5pm and is held at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
