What you'll learn in this storytelling class:

Storytelling has been a buzzword in business, sales and marketing for a few years – what makes a story a good story though? Whether you are telling one in the meeting room or the bar with friends, engaging stories are impossible to ignore, and boring, drawn out and highly detailed stories are exhausting.

A good story should come in a package – there needs to be a hook, drawing your audience in, a point – it can’t ramble into the abyss! – and there needs to be a solid ending – it doesn’t have to be a happily ever after, it does need to end. This class will focus in on the basics of good storytelling, with an emphasis on telling stories in a confident and engaging manner. 

Students will learn tips to craft effective stories for personal and professional environments, workshop potential stories (you’re welcome to bring one in!) and leave with personalized feedback on your own storytelling style.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

If you're looking for a refund, you need to back out of the class a week before it starts. We know it's draconian, but since we're not charging a million bucks, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings. Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around your friends and see if anyone would take your spot, then just get money from them! We also can't switch you between class sessions or give any sort of refund after the class happens.

Storytelling for Professionals
Reviewed by Yangsin L. on 9/7/2018
I thoroughly enjoyed my class with Charly! I thought she was an excellent instructor and made storytelling very approachable and fun. This class does lean towards creative storytelling, but there are lessons applicable to more presentation-oriented or data-oriented storytelling styles. Charly employs a few improv techniques to get you in the headspace to present in front of group. I would recommend this class to those looking to improve their public speaking and need pointers on delivering an effective story.

The class was fun, but mimicked many of the improv techniques I already learned in a previous class by the Engaging Educator about women and communication. I would recommend it if you haven't previously taken a class by this school.
