Storytelling Techniques
And much more TECHNIQUE:
Frameworks & Metaphors How to handle complexity? TECHNIQUE:
Scenario & Storyboard Stories bring data to life.

“Facts need the context of
when, who, where
to become Truths.”

A. Simmons - The Story Factor Most audiences:
Hard data?
No fabels?
Your credibility is at stake! What can storytelling do? Homework still counts :-) There is no bypassing your investigation and analysis work
You still need to build, collect and interpret data
But there are opportunities to use for delivering information Storyboard
by using mindmapping What is this good for?
•Coaching your ability to allow stories
to float to the surface without thinking to much.
•Practicing decision-making.
•Fast adaptation to your present audience.
In a fast-paced world with volumes of data thrown at us each day, it’s hard to find meaning and relevancy in what is tossed in front of us. Storytelling techniques can help us to take facts important and small from your research experiences and weave together information in one format that brings data to life: the story. Storytelling done well pauses the speed button, restoring our mental peace well enough to not just listen but digest, to resonate with the information we have at hand. www.corporatestoryteller.be Use a presentation theme.
Your audience will adopt a theme in the same way
that they adopt a slogan or a logo;
because it is simple and memorable.

A consistent theme to our presentation, conveying practical benefit and familiarity will be remembered best -- proving most effective for helping our audience to follow the presentation.

Themes are essentially memory aids. They provide presentation continuity. And while you could just show
a single slide in your presentation
or single paragraph in your proposal of your metaphor...

the true simplification and power comes from:

extending your metaphor throughout the entire presentation and integrating it into each of the complex details. The value of a great metaphor is that it can summarize your entire presentation in a single concept.

It can encapsulate everything you are trying to say in a single place, simplified and holistic, like a dashboard in a car that displays relevant information that makes driving easier. What metaphor
to use? Think of Things Everyone Know
Think About What You Are Presenting: Oversimplify
Think About What You Know A presentation without a scenario
is like a cart without a horse. How to create your scenario & storyboard?

Write down key points, ideas, and concepts under consecutive storyboard frames (see attached).

Your storyboard should in essence be a type of map, outlining all the major steps needed to complete the learning objective(s) for that lesson.

Make rough sketches of visuals for each frame. Don’t worry about polish at this point; you just want the idea of the visual clearly portrayed.

Read your presentation while looking at the storyboard and complete the storyboard checklist:
-Does my visual clearly display one key idea?
-Is my aid as visually simple as I can make it?
-Can my audience understand my visual completely in less than
30 seconds?

You can create your storyboard on paper or various software such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Inspiration
