Utilizing storytelling techniques can make the difference between keeping your listeners on the edge of their seats or on the brink of sleep. This workshop introduced attendees to the methods of storytelling-narrative flow, drama and tension, body language, hand gestures, even facial expressions – as powerful tools of communication. Registrants concluded the session by creating and performing their own stories.
