As students, Workers or Entrepreneurs, there's always a time where we need to communicate, express ourselves and impact others with what we want to say. Storytelling is one major tool we can use for it. But a lot of people either use it the wrong or don't even use it. Steve Richards, our speaker and will share with us his secrets on the best way to leverage storytelling to impact audiences.

About this event

Once upon a time, there was a young 9 years old boy Called "Zhang". Zhang was incredibly smart, yet he had difficulties to memorize things he had learned. No matter how hard he tried, he just could not remember the planets of the solar system. It just did not stick in his head. One day his teacher told him a story about all the planets. A story about how the sun was lonely and Mercury was his first friend. How Mercury fell madly in love with Venus and how Planet Earth got jealous. After telling him the story, Zhang was able to remember all of the planets in the right order. Why? Because of the magic of storytelling. Zhang could remember the story and with that, he could remember the planets.

On the 17th November, our speaker Steve Richards will share his story with us, how he became an experienced storytelling teacher and at the end we'll have a small storytelling workshop where he'll teach us his best techniques we can easily apply to communicate better with others. Storytelling uses are unlimited. You can apply them in your public speeches, school projects or even in your writings.
