Who should take this? Anyone who has to pitch (themselves, a product, or service), perform, present, talk in public, or persuade/sell/impact others through stories and the art of telling stories. Note: priority given to APIAA-identified attendees and POC-identified attendees, although this workshop is open to any and all people.
Philosophy: Storytelling is an art and a science. Stories are powerful because they make us feel and imagine, therefore:
• Best practices and tools are ubiquitous, but the best way to become a better storyteller is to do it and iterate
• The class will be about telling not writing
• The days will involve laughing, listening, moving, and group participation
• Most people attend way too many meetings and stare at too many PowerPoint slides. This class is not about sitting on our butts and taking notes or looking at slides. It is after all, taught by a comedian
• Each member of the workshop a particular strength or style in storytelling, so Dhaya will not teach everyone in the same way way. We will look for the strengths in others, not “constructive criticism” which is you have ever taken a class is almost always awful.note: If the class does not meet the minimum number of registered students it will be canceled.
