One of the most compelling ways to communicate an idea is through story. Whether presenting your ideas at work, giving a pitch, or sharing something you're passionate about at a team meeting, meetup, or conference, it's critical to be able to tell an engaging story. In this workshop, you'll learn where to get started when crafting any presentation. You'll also learn the elements of storytelling and how to use story to craft a message that sticks. Get hands-on as you craft a story and learn how it fits into an overall presentation structure. Leave with methods you can use next time you need to present!
