Overview

Have you ever wanted to create presentations that are more effective, compelling, insightful and actionable? This course shows you how to move beyond data, ‘facts’ and information and harness the power of ‘Storytelling’. Storytelling is a proven technique used by authors, journalists and thinkers which can have a dramatic impact on the way you, your company and your agencies communicate.

Who should attend?

This course is for anyone who prepares and presents arguments, recommendations and conclusions – either for themselves or their company (all levels from director downwards). Those who present data or research will find it particularly useful, such as: research agencies, media agencies, ad agency planners and account managers, client insight/research teams and sales managers.

Learning outcomes

  • Write less and think more.
  • Use the basic elements of storytelling.
  • Learn the difference between the presentation deck and the leave behind.
  • Use your - and your company’s - time more efficiently.
