How to Step into Storytelling

This workshop teaches you the basics of how to become a storyteller yourself. You will learn how to choose a story and make it own, how to relate well to your audience, how to project your voice, and many other techniques that today’s top storytellers use every time they perform.

These techniques don’t only apply to storytelling, but to all forms of public speaking. You will learn how to take charge of a room, how to grab their attention and keep it, and how to make your presentation memorable.

I have two versions of this workshop: one for adults and one for kids:

  • Adults: Step into Storytelling
  • Kids: Who Has a Scar?
