How to become a more powerful presenter and storyteller

Every presenter, trainer and teacher knows the value of being able to write and deliver a great story. Every standup comedian lives or dies by their ability to tell a great story and capture the imagination of an audience. I read Steve Martin’s excellent book “Born standing up” Its a great read and he talks about the need for practice and developing the skills need to engage and entertain an audience

“DID STAND-UP COMEDY for eighteen years. Ten of those years were spent learning, four years were spent refining, and four were spent in wild success.”
― Steve Martin, Born Standing Up: A Comic’s Life

For the last five years Doug O Brien and I have been developing and running the “Stories from the Outside Inn workshop that teaches the skills needed to engage and maintain audience interest. Here is some of what we teach each year in New York and in the UK weekend trainings. Book online here 

Here’s some of what you can expect

• Develop using your voice to create audience interest
• Learn how to influence yourself and others with a better insight into the power of language
• Discover the art of tapping into your own creative talent and the importance of getting into state when presenting to a group
• Explore the art of storytelling and how to use it to help yourself and others.
• Learn how to develop better communication for business, personal development, coaching, therapy and public presentation situations

These weekends are highly interactive and for small groups to ensure that everybody receives the best possible attention. The events attract a wide range of people including performance artists, teachers, trainers, writers, business folks and anyone who wants to improve their presenting and communication skills
