If you are interested in storytelling, but don’t know where to start, this workshop facilitated by Sheila Wee, is for you. In 9 hours (over 2 Saturdays) of hands-on training, it will give you a firm grounding in storytelling skills. You will leave the workshop with one ready to tell story and the tools to learn and tell more stories.
In a warm and supportive group environment you will learn why storytelling is such a powerful form of communication; how stories can be structured to hook listener’s attention and discover your own personal storytelling style. Through group, partner and individual exercises, you will be guided through a step-by-step method of learning to tell a story without memorising the words. You will also discover how to add details to make the story uniquely yours, and learn effective story rehearsal and performance techniques.
“A fantastic workshop. Every second is worth a million! Thanks a lot for waking up the storyteller in me.”
“Sheila came across as very sincere and passionate about sharing her expertise in storytelling. She not only taught us how to tell stories, but inspired us as well. The workshop was also well paced with a very relevant and well planned programme.”
“Would recommend it to others. A solid introduction. Inspiring.”
The 9-hour workshop (over two Saturdays) is for anyone interested in learning to tell stories: whether at work or at home, to adults or children, just for fun, or as a step towards telling professionally.
