Workshop: Using Storytelling for an Engaging Presentation
After you publicly present an idea, piece of research or business proposition, your audience may very well forget your qualifications, education, background, attitude, philosophy of life, or even the subject you spoke on. But they'll remember the stories you tell.
Nothing else engages the heart, mind, and gut, all at the same time, the way a story does . . . but only if it's well-constructed, well-rehearsed, and well-delivered.
In this workshop, hosted by the office of faculty development, you will come prepared with a 3-to-5-minute, non-academic talk. It can be a piece of research/scholarship that you want to build on in the coming years, and that you're passionate about and want to engage others in. Or it can just be a plain old story – about a personal experience, a major or minor event, or anything you feel strongly connected to.
