The power of storytelling

  • Venture Cafe Sydney 58 Waterloo Road Macquarie Park Australia (map)

We all like a good story, it’s deeply rooted in our human nature to appeal to people’s emotions… it’s a way to cut through the NOISE and be noticed. Have you been to a pitch session lately and noticed how some budding entrepreneurs have a great story that reels you in hook, line and sinker?

In today’s environment, we need storytelling skills more than ever; whether you are kicking off your next project at work, starting up a business or wanting to share an amazing idea/discovery/invention.  

Join us at Venture Café this Thursday as we explode storytelling tactics you need every day to engage your audience, create killer content… and look to the future.
