Why study this course

With the average attention span lasting no more than seven seconds, it has never been more important to capture and hold attention. This session focuses on how to craft and tell an artful story. Using contemporary neuroscience, we explore how to light up seven key regions of the brain by telling insightful stories. This creates a greater link to memory than if we to merely tell people what to do. Participants will uncover why these areas are important to engage and how stories have greater influence on their recipients.

To support the successful delivery of the story, participants will have the opportunity to deliver their own story to a range of audiences through a variety of different means, from one on one conversation to a formal presentation.

This session focuses on how to give compelling presentations without the use of notes, as well as hints and tips to calm the jitters and use body language to connect with the audience. This is a unique opportunity to practice speaking publicly in a safe environment and gain valuable feedback for improvement.

This course is appealing to aspiring, emerging and current leaders wanting to influence the people in their organisation as well as business owners, salespeople, volunteers and teammates. There is an optional qualification upgrade available.

This course is often delivered in two half-days instead of one full day.
