Based on years of original research, and honed during his regularly sold out London courses, ‘The Science of Storytelling’ is Will Storr’s unique exploration of the secrets and power of story.
Storytelling is the most ancient of arts – and the most powerful. It’s about so much more than mere entertainment. Story is how we learn who we are and how the world works. It moves us, persuades us and transports us, creating empathy and memory and beguiling us into seeing life in a whole new way. Research shows that story gives our lives meaning and focus and that those with a strong sense of their own personal story are happier.
Storr’s unique approach, which he’s been invited to present everywhere from Liverpool to Istanbul to Bangkok and at major institutions including Hearst Magazines and the European Parliament, involves using the latest findings from psychology and neuroscience to understand how the brain generates and experiences story. Using these insights we can hack the system and learn how to become much more effective storytellers.
Whether you’re a marketeer or branding specialist who wants to persuade and change behaviour, a leader who wants to inspire, an educator who wants to teach lessons that stick or simply a writer who wants to improve your craft, Storr’s programme will give you a deeper understanding of exactly how story can transform what you do.
Storytelling is a global skill that can be applied to so many aspects of our personal and professional lives. Not only can it change the way you go about your business, it can change the way you live your life.
