B2B storytelling training
About this 1 day training workshop:
Farewell ‘golden thread’, hello ‘golden zip’.This course takes a data driven approach to crafting intentional stories that match audiences needs to your strategic benefits. Broadcast stories are great – but targeted stories get results. There are great courses on story structure and engaging audiences emotionally. But do they consider your target audience, where their hearts and minds currently are, and how your story uniquely meets those needs?
This course will help you:
- See how to use data to identify your audience’s specific emotional needs
- Surface your audience’s motivations
- Identify the touchpoints and levers your audience will truly respond to
- Distil the purpose of your message that can meet your audience’s needs and drive them to action
Most stories are designed ‘author-out’. This course teaches you how to write stories that unites your audience’s needs with your purpose and intent.
