Storytelling Workshop (Pimp your story and make it stick)

Zuriberg Toastmasters Club is very proud to host a special workshop about storytelling
on 2nd February 2016 (with registration from 18:30)

Have you ever wondered how to make your stories stick?

Are you a toastmaster trying to create impact and ready to step out and share your story? Whether you’re preparing for your icebreaker or or delving into one of the many advanced manuals, wouldn’t it be great to have a way of creating content that people easily understand and gets them so excited that they run off and share your stories with the world? What if they could remember you and your project in easy and fun ways that engage other people and help them figure out what they want and why your project is so important to them? 

If all of this would interest you, Storytelling made Simple has been waiting for you. Using a simple story telling framework that is based in cognitive science and naturally organizes information in a way that is easy to digest for people’s brains, we will take your stories and turn them from Fiat Pandas into Ferraris or from Porsches into Electric cars (depending on your distinguished taste and purpose).

Members of Zuriberg should register their attendance via easySpeak (click here), other Toastmaster members, could you send a short email to Tim Birch ( including confirmation of your club name.
