Storytelling isn’t just for bedtime. It’s an important 21st century leadership skill, especially for the next generation of seafarers. It builds better communication and interpersonal relation skills, and helps leaders persuade, teach, and inspire their people.

Whether you’re a student, a parent, a teacher, a businessperson, a leader, or just someone who wants to communicate better, you need storytelling skills.

Why? Because stories are powerful.

We communicate best through stories. Stories spark a connection; they resonate within us. A good story told by a skilled storyteller engages both the mind and the heart.

Join the first TELLING STORIES, CREATING CONNECTIONS: Storytelling for the 21st Century Workshop on Saturday, February 29, 2020, 8AM to 5PM at the PICC.

Php1000 fee includes two talks, three workshops, all materials, snacks, and lunch.

You can choose three workshops to attend.

Let Me Tell You a Story

The Stories You Tell Yourself

The Digital Story

Everyone is online these days. This workshop will show how best to engage your audience online through blogs, blogs and other online platforms. It will focus on honest, captivating, real content, rather than click rates and impressions.
