We all have a story to share

Yet do we know how to 'SHAPE OUR STORY' to make it even more meaningful to an intended audience?

  • The Shaping Your Story workshop begins with us all gaining a deeper understanding of our own role as global citizens. What is it that we can personally bring to an audience to enhance their experience of helping to build a more humanitarian world?

    • Is it our own life experiences?

    • A certain expertise we have?

    • Or our passion for a particular cause?

  • We then model how to take an aspect of your personal story and develop it into a 'lesson', so that the audience learns more; is further engaged by the story-teller; and the message is more deeply embedded.

  • We examine the practical skills of public speaking, as well as the unseen skills of an artful facilitator.

  • Participants learn to 'speak their story', by shaping it into a lesson to ensure the message is more meaningful and lasting for their audience.


    You will learn skills such as:

    • how to build a provocation;

    • how to hold a courageous conversation;

    • how to connect to your audience;

    • how to use your story so the audience can imagine a better world.

Every participant will leave the workshop armed with a valuable new way to share their story with an audience.
