Presentation skills. Storytelling for business.

"Every successful presentation is build on four pillars. People, Ideas, Passion & Preparations." - Mazinah Kutty Mammy

WHAT is Storytelling for business and WHY is it so important?

You are standing in front of an audience… 10, 50, 100, 500 people.

And regardless if you need to present a new product, announce an event or just speak to your colleagues, we all know that our approach to the situation is essential for winning the audience. To hold their attention, you need to touch them with your story, your voice, the way your body speaks … with your whole presence.

Recent studies have shown that human focus is only 8 seconds long, which means we have a short time window to steal people’s attention and make them listen to us.

Storytelling is a powerful way to learn how to present and influence the audience using their emotions. The course consists of five different meetings (modules), which have a purely practical focus.

The final module is a ceremony where each participant has to present a short story or a presentation in front of the group.

Additionally, each participant receives an individual coaching session in which more deeply can be discussed personal difficulties with presenting.


"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." — Maya Angelou
