The module of The Storytelling Program is to introduce the participant with the concept of Storytelling. The introduction is made with the short film presented as excellent storytelling. The module will follow with explaining the Power of Storytelling in making a lasting connection with the guests and the benefits for businesses with storytelling. The first module is to provide the participants a better understanding of who the guests are and how to develop a story.
Storytelling embraces a more casual entertainment and personal engagement approach. This technique is to stimulate and provoke an audience, with the aim of forging an emotional and intellectual connection with the interpreter/ storyteller. For the purpose of this program the focus is on storytelling, as it is considered to be more aligned with the motivations of tourists and tourism operator.
One of the main objectives is to understand techniques on how to get to know the guests and to make them feel the “Zjeito” and to understand different story structures and how it affects the brain.
We will introduce the participants with the concept of Storytelling following by explaining the power of Storytelling, we will dive into the first three steps of five on delivering excellent storytelling:
1) Know your guests
(Who is your target market)
2) Discover our story
(How to create a unique story, what sets you apart from other businesses)
3) Develop your story
