OUR TAKE ON STORYTELLING

Storytelling is a transferable skill-set, a great asset when expressing complicated or personal ideas. Whether you’re applying for a job, delivering a presentation, or working on a team, storytelling is an excellent way to build strong connections between you, your subject matter, and your audience. Beyond simply proving your point, a great story serves as a touchstone—the critical entry point for your audience.

Oral storytelling is amongst the oldest forms of human expression—and in today’s world, it’s hard not to notice the re-emergence of autobiographical storytelling. Live shows and podcasts such as The Moth, Risk, or Canada’s own Confabulation are all contributing to the re-popularization of oral storytelling.
