ABOUT STORYSHOP

The purpose of any presentation is to deliver information with a meaningful impact on your audience; Information that informs, persuades, entertains and inspires.

Yet very often, our audience is disengaged and unimpressed with our ideas. We walk away feeling that our presentation skills are inadequate and that our professional image may be
affected.

We too struggled with how to transmit complex concepts to disengaged audiences. That is why this five-week Masterclass is designed to give you the knowledge of Facilitators, Professional Speakers, and Storytellers so that you may deliver your next presentation with competence and confidence.

The aim of this program is to provide delegates with the opportunity to improve and develop their effective business and public communication skills using storytelling as a tool. Delegates will learn to confidently and effectively communicate with others using a “learn by doing” approach.

how does it work

The Communication Masterclass is hosted virtually by professional trainers, facilitators and trainers.

Each week delegates will prepare speeches and business presentations. Delegates will receive constructive feedback from the facilitators and provide feedback to each other in group discussions.

Upon completion of this program, delegates are strongly encouraged to continue their communication and presentation development as members of a Toastmasters Club.

We would be happy to support the establishment of a Toastmasters club in your company if a club is not available in the vicinity.

Please note that Toastmasters is an independent entity and membership will attract additional costs.
