Creating a Compelling Narrative: How to create compelling narratives or stories using anything around us. Attendees will learn to make stories natural and adaptable depending on the context and audience.
The Art of Telling Stories: How to effectively use stories to create trust and emotional connections along with the art of when to use your story.
