Purposeful Storytelling Workshop:
Story Development

How to identify the key ‘story’ elements of your journey and structure them in a way that takes the audience along for the ride.

Michelle Ray speakerIn this workshop, you will focus on story – your story. If you already ‘know’ what your story is, you’ll have the opportunity to deepen your understanding of it – and hopefully, you’ll discover the ‘story behind the story’. If you have a topic but are not quite sure what your story is yet, well, fasten your seatbelt. Then, you’ll map out all the elements of your story in a way that takes the audience along for the ride!

You will work on and develop:

  • The five layers of differentiation – what makes YOUR story different!
  • The core of your story – the story behind your story.
  • The classic story structure since ancient Greek times
  • The two struggles your story must embody
  • The moral/lesson/key insight of your story
  • The moSpeaker 3x3+2 memory grid, and a complete map of your story using the Index Card ‘Trick’ so you could lose the notes.

In addition, we will borrow key bits from the rest of the Purposeful Storytelling curriculum as needed to help your story come alive.

Cindy-Stone-197x296I would recommend every speaking professional and writer take Michel's Story Development masterclass. Writing stories is about thinking deeply about the story and the characters. In speaking the character is you and the story yours. Often we are too close to our own stories to get as deep as we need to in order to pick out all the nuggets, understand their impact and make them shine, so the audience knows exactly what lessons we are imparting and that those lessons exist on multiple levels. Michel helps us to dig deeper and then dig some more.

I attended the moSpeaker Academy - Story Development session and what an amazing experience it was. I left that session with a new way of looking at developing a story with an absolute focus and direction. I had already created a presentation and see now changes I can make in it AND I also see more clearly what my purpose is. In addition, I got to practice standing up in front of people to present a story and receive feedback...which was a totally new, very stressful and totally inspiring experience for me. I left feeling totally exhausted and excited all bundled together!!!!
