The powerful art of storytelling

Vanessa Yong
Class Format

A concise workshop designed to up-skill you within a hour and a half. There will group exercises, feedback sessions and case studies carefully curated for the experience.


Humans have long utilised storytelling as a central mode of communication. All through history, humans have had a need to tell their stories despite slight differences in the mode of delivery - Cave drawings to graffiti; poems to songs; books to movies - one thing that’s clear, is the fundamental need for us as a species to share our ideas and experiences. Communicating through storytelling allows us to transport audiences by influencing them to tap on their own imagination. In this session, we explore methods to build up a narrative for yourself that harnesses the powerful art of storytelling!

Key takeaways

1. Structured way to communicate through a narrative

2. Taking a ‘portfolio’ approach to build a narrative around your life

3. Learning to tell a story on just about anything
