About the Session

You know this moment: you're explaining an important issue to the bosses. But you get lost in the details, you're talking too much... you get the feeling they're listening but not understanding. All you get back is blank stares!

Want to be understood by your colleagues? Let's build a bridge to understanding with stories. Less information, more inspiration. Come and learn how to turn your insights into narratives your stakeholders can understand quickly and easily. In this high-energy session, you'll get off your feet and start creating stories to explain yourself.

What you’ll learn

  • how to find your inner storyteller
  • how to find suitable metaphors, analogies, and historical examples
  • how to make thematic connections between facts and stories
