From “Once upon a time…” to “You know what happened yesterday evening…” human beings are natural storytellers. We enjoy sharing our experiences (little spiced-up, of course – all would agree secretly) and knowingly or unknowingly become a storyteller. If you were to inspire someone, from a child to the CEO of a company, the story would possibly be the first and the last draw from the quiver of arrows. Irrespective of who you are, from a mother to the leader, stories are the means of sending out covert suggestions. Stories have been told from ancient times and will be told to time undefined to entertain, motivate, teach or suggest. Stories being so powerful and common a medium of communication, it is surprising that many find it difficult to use them appropriately and effectively.
The Art of Storytelling is a program designed to fill that gap. It follows a simple enough approach that could be learned by anyone to find, create, annotate, curate, and narrate stories to achieve desired outcomes.
It starts from basics and goes on to model some of the great masters of the craft of storytelling.
The Art of Storytelling course is divided into two parts.
- Part one deals with the basics of how to create a story and/or how to modify a story to meet requirements.
- Part two deals with the subtle art of engaging your audience and delivering the story.
Some of the topics that will be covered in the program are
Part I: Creating an inspirational story

Part II: Delivering the story

And many more…
