Storytelling for Storied Times - with Satish Shenoy and Rajesh Setty
Storytelling enables you to create a strong emotional connection with your audience of one or hundreds. Given the unique situation we find ourselves in today, telling compelling stories becomes even more critical and especially useful in a business setting. Whether you are trying to make yourself memorable to someone you meet, or make your audience feel a certain emotion, or even sell an idea, a product or service, your ability to tell a compelling story will ensure that you are able to achieve the outcome you had planned.
In this workshop, you will gain an understanding of the key elements of storytelling framework and apply it to your advantage in your everyday interactions with your customers, prospects, colleagues and even friends and family.
