Switch On At Work


Storytelling For Impact

WORKSHOP | JAN 28, 2023

A 5-hour workshop to help you create a narrative, and amplify your message.

“The best storytellers don’t know they’re storytellers until
they start telling stories.”
-Adaora Mbelu

You have a story, and we want to help tell it.

Your story matters because it is uniquely your own. No one has your voice. No one has your thoughts. No one has your experiences, dreams, hopes, and fears. No one else can do this. You have the story, and we have the skill sets, passion, experience, and energy to help you bring it to life.

Every presentation, talk, pitch, idea, or conversation made to anyone on the planet, where you expect them to SHIFT (no matter how data-driven) can be delivered in a way that is compelling, and appeals to all five senses.

We are in an age of social media, quick videos, and short attention spans. So, how do you get your target audience to listen to your message, and also engage with it? The answer is Storytelling. Stories are a great way to explain complex information, get people emotionally connected, and prompt people to take a desired action.

Your higher purpose and learning to OWN the different parts of you will liberate really powerful stories, and when you connect them to your personal brand, or any product or service you are trying to promote, you deliver an unforgettable lifelong experience that will leave a long-lasting impression.

This workshop will coach you on how to articulate what you’re trying to convey to your audience and find the words to do that. You will also gain tools and techniques that will help you bring your ideas to life and create stories that influence and inspire. You’ll leave this workshop with important storytelling tools that motivate people to take action, a keen understanding of your audience and their needs, and ways to hone your story through systems of feedback on your delivery tone and style
