This live training session with BAFTA-winning John Yorke will give an understanding of how stories work and why they’re an essential tool to communicate more effectively, create messages with impact, pitch ideas, and ensure teams have a common language of story.
We’ll look at the essential ingredients all stories have in common and ways to identify them and put them together for practical effect. John will include practical exercises to enhance the learning.
Participants will emerge from the training day with:
● Greater awareness of what makes a successful story
● Working knowledge of the basic building blocks of story
● Understanding of the structural blueprint underlying all successful stories
● Practical tools with which to break a story into its component parts, diagnose why a story isn’t working plus simple ways to fix common problems
● How to apply the principles to their day job
This workshop is being held in collaboration with John Yorke Story, and will be held at the Watershed by the Harbourside from 11am – 2pm.
