Celebrating the Art of Storytelling

September 7, 2014 Content Marketing no comments

Do you have a story to tell? I’m sure you do. In fact, all of us are storytellers at every stage of life.

An ancient art form beloved by all, storytelling has brought stories to life since the dawn of time. Through their vivid and dramatic sharing, storytellers help to unlock our humanity and allow us to connect deeply with the rich personal narratives that rule our lives.

A good storyteller – be it at work or at play – can enchant and excite a crowd. The most memorable icons of human history are great oral storytellers. By employing the right mix of words, tone of voice, and dramatic gestures, these leaders have triggered political revolutions, started religions, led massive organisations, or created global movements that shape our lives in countless ways.
