Online Journey: Storytelling for Presentations

Why do presentations often fail to have the impact we desire? One reason is that information alone will never move people. In this course, you’ll go with the power of storytelling beyond presenting just the facts and figures to craft compelling presentations that will motivate others, inspire action, and enable buy-in. By surfacing what matters to your audience, you’ll learn to create presentations that are both meaningful and memorable. Gain the confidence and skills it takes to shift the way people think, feel, and behave.

Course Outcomes
  • Deliver presentations that spark a shift in beliefs, behaviors, and mindsets.
  • Sequence and convey your information in a storytelling that will create a meaningful journey for your audience.
  • Open hearts and minds by developing a trusted relationship with your audience.
  • Apply storytelling techniques to help people pay attention and remember the information you share.
  • Practice with unique presentation storytelling methods in order to create an engaging experience for your audience.

Week 1: Introduction – Move Your Audience

Understand how information and emotion work together to create presentations that have the power to spark change and inspire new mindsets and behaviors.

  • Messages That Spark Change—It’s not what you say, but how you say it
  • Mentor Moment—Try something new
  • Choose Your Presentation: Choose the 10-15 minute presentation you’ll be workshopping throughout the course. Use an existing presentation or choose from one of our sample presentation prompts. Identify your audience, your starting assumptions for what you must do or include in this presentation, and the skills you most want to grow.

Week 2: Plan the Journey

Create a compelling story arc through the information by combining your goals with audience needs.

Week 3: Become the Guide

Develop a trusted connection with your audience that opens their hearts and minds to your message.

Week 4: Make it Memorable

Design your presentation to align with the way the brain focuses on and remembers information.

Week 5: Conclusion – Look Ahead

The end of the presentation is the beginning. Learn how to end presentations in a way that gives the ideas within them room to grow and evolve.
