What is storytelling?
Storytelling is the art of using language, vocalization,
and/or physical movement and gesture to reveal the
elements and images of a story to a specific, live audience.
4 elements of storytelling
• Storytelling is interactive: two-way interaction between a storyteller
and one or more listeners: tightly connect the teller and audience.
• Storytelling uses actions such as vocalization, physical movement
and/or gesture.
• Storytelling always involves the presentation of a story - a narrative.
• Storytelling encourages the active imagination of the listeners.
2 essential elements
1. Story: narrative account of a real or imagined
event or events
2. Telling: live, person-to-person oral and physical
presentation of a story to an audience
Storytelling predates writing
• Storytelling is among the most ancient of arts.
• Stories or narratives have been shared in every culture as a means of
entertainment, education, cultural preservation and instilling moral values.
• With the advent of writing and the use of stable, portable media, stories
were recorded, transcribed and shared over wide regions of the world.
Storytelling has been here forever
• Stories function as a tool to pass on knowledge in a social context.
– Storytelling is the oldest form of passing knowledge and much of how we look at
what we like to call facts is influenced by stories and how we interpret them.
• Stories are universal in that they can bridge cultural, linguistic and age-
related divides.
• To hear a story is to be touched in heart and mind, in body and spirit.

  • 2. What is storytelling? Storytelling is the art of using language, vocalization, and/or physical movement and gesture to reveal the elements and images of a story to a specific, live audience.
  • 3. 4 elements of storytelling • Storytelling is interactive: two-way interaction between a storyteller and one or more listeners: tightly connect the teller and audience. • Storytelling uses actions such as vocalization, physical movement and/or gesture. • Storytelling always involves the presentation of a story - a narrative. • Storytelling encourages the active imagination of the listeners.
  • 4. 2 essential elements 1. Story: narrative account of a real or imagined event or events 2. Telling: live, person-to-person oral and physical presentation of a story to an audience
  • 5. Storytelling predates writing • Storytelling is among the most ancient of arts. • Stories or narratives have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation and instilling moral values. • With the advent of writing and the use of stable, portable media, stories were recorded, transcribed and shared over wide regions of the world.
  • 6. Storytelling has been here forever • Stories function as a tool to pass on knowledge in a social context. – Storytelling is the oldest form of passing knowledge and much of how we look at what we like to call facts is influenced by stories and how we interpret them. • Stories are universal in that they can bridge cultural, linguistic and age- related divides. • To hear a story is to be touched in heart and mind, in body and spirit.
  • 7. Storytelling is a mean for sharing and interpreting experiences • Stories are a prime vehicle for assessing and interpreting events, experiences, and concepts from minor moments of daily life to the grand nature of the human condition. • Through this sharing of experience we use stories to pass on accumulated wisdom, beliefs, and values. • Through stories we explain how things are, why they are, and our role and purpose. • Metanarrative, sometimes also known as master or grand narrative, is a higher-level cultural narrative schema which orders and explains knowledge and experience you've had in life.
  • 8. Humans are storytelling organisms • Humans lead storied lives, individually and socially. • Human knowledge is based on stories and the human brain consists of cognitive machinery necessary to understand, remember and tell stories. • Stories mirror human thought as humans think in narrative structures and most often remember facts in story form. • Facts can be understood as smaller versions of a larger story, thus storytelling can supplement analytical thinking.
  • 9. Learning to listen • Stories are effective educational tools because listeners become engaged and therefore remember. • While the storylistener is engaged, they are able to imagine new perspectives, inviting a transformative and empathetic experience. • Because stories often have multiple layers of meanings, listeners have to listen closely to identify the underlying knowledge in the story. • Storytelling is used as a tool to teach children the importance of respect through the practice of listening.
  • 10. Stories to heal • A personal narrative process is involved in a person's sense of personal or cultural identity, and in the creation and construction of memories; it is thought by some to be the fundamental natureof the self. • The breakdown of a coherent or positive narrative has been implicated in the development of psychosis and mental disorder, and its repair said to play an important role in journeys of recovery. • Narrative Therapy is a school of psychotherapy and therapeutic storytelling is the act of telling one's story in an attempt to better understand oneself or one's situation.
  • 11. Stories to empower • Some approaches treat narratives as politically motivated stories, stories empowering certain groups and stories giving people agency. • Political theorist, Hannah Arendt argues that storytelling transforms private meaning to public meaning.
  • 12. Stories as a marketing tool • For many multi-media communication complex institutions, communicating by using storytelling techniques can be a more compelling and effective route of delivering information than that of using only dry facts. • Storytelling is increasingly used in advertising today in order to build customer loyalty. • Stories are illustrative, easily memorable and allow any firm to create stronger emotional bonds with the customers.
  • 20. Our brains are far more engaged by storytelling than by cold, hard facts. • When reading straight data, only the language parts of our brains work to decode the meaning. • But when we read a story,not only do the language parts of our brains light up, but any other part of the brain that we would use if we were actually experiencing what we're reading about becomes activated as well. • This means it's far easier for us to remember stories than hard facts. • Stories allow us to capture our listeners’ attention,but they also make it more likely that they will remember what we are telling them.
  • 21. Storytelling helps you to remember the facts • Remember that great teacher that used to tell stories about what he was teaching and how those stories made you remember better what you learned as compared with that boring teacher that just ‘teached’ and whose name you have probably forgotten? • Finally we are social animals with language as the ultimate way of communicating, expressing emotions, perceiving the world around us and ourselves and even simply being.

  • 37. Mixing 3 key elements
  • 39. How to write a good story • Clear moral or purpose – there’s a reason why you’re telling this story, to this audience, at this time. • Personal connection – the story involves either you, or someone you feel connected to. • Common reference points – the audience understands the context and situation of the story. • Detailed characters and imagery – have enough visual description that we can see what you’re seeing. • Conflict, vulnerability, or achievement we can relate to – show us the challenges. • Pacing – there’s a clear beginning, ending, and segue way back to the topic.
  • 41. How to write a good story • Keep a log of story content. • When you have important points, match them with a story. • Practice them. • Don’t try to be perfect. Allow yourself to be vulnerable. • Use good story structure.
  • 42. How to write a good story • Start with the message • Mine your own experiences The best storytellers look to their own memories and life experiences for ways to illustrate their message. What events in your life make you believe in the idea you are trying to share? • Don’t make yourself the hero • Highlight a struggle • Keep it simple. Less is more: choose! • Practice makes perfect
  • 43. How to write a good story • Paint the scene. Too much detail can bore, and the same goes for too little detail. • Include your reactions to the events that unfolded. • Add dialogue. • Establish the norm, and then contrast that with how an event didn't go as expected. • Once you establish the norm of the story, describe the turning point. • Post-Commentary Wrapping Up. You can recover many bad stories by adding good post-commentary. The post-commentary allows you to reflect back on what happened and make witty comments about it.
  • 44. How to write a good story: 5 elements 1. Setting (where your story takes place) 2. Character (the hero/heroine/protagonist who has adventures) 3. Plot (the events that unfold, the arc of what happens) 4. Conflict (the obstacles the characters encounter) 5. Theme (the resolution of the conflict, what's been learned along the way)
  • 50. The story of me, the story of us, the story of now “…public narrative is composed of three elements: a story of self, a story of us, and a story of now. A story of self communicates who I am – my values, my experience, why I do what I do. A story of us communicates who we are – our shared values, our shared experience, and why we do what we do. And a story of now transforms the present into a moment of challenge, hope, and choice.”
  • 51. The good news • You already know how to tell a good story. You do. You've been telling stories your entire life. • Storytelling is what psychologists refer to as an "unconscious competence" -- a skill, like walking, eating, or complaining that has become second nature to us.

  • 57. Second: pick a story! • What is the story and narrative behind everything you do as a brand, ranging from what you stand for to the reason why you developed solution X or decided to support ‘good cause Y’? • Think about how your brand was born, what inspired you to create the company and what your personal mission is.
  • 58. Find inspiration in your life experiences
  • 59. Third. Structure the whole speech! • The Grabber. Grab your audience’s attention with an anecdote, a question, a startling statistic or a thought-provoking quotation. • The Message. Follow the grabber with a one-line statement that succinctly tells the audience what your presentation is about. • The Closure. Sum up your main points in one sentenceand give your call to action. – This could be a direct close such as “visit our website” or an indirect close that reminds people of the hardship they will endure if they don’t take action. Really powerful speeches also reconnect with the beginning of the speech in some way. This also avoids the embarrassment of having to tell the audience that you have finished. The challenge is to have a grabber that allows an easy referral back.
