Storytelling for Scientists

Storytelling is a powerful tool. Scientific facts can be presented in a variety of story models to create memorable pieces of information for your audience. Kick off with a new narration and discover instruments that enable you to present your research or startup in better way.

Learn to set communication goals, define target groups and design messages that will stick in other people’s minds. Best practice examples and bits of communication theory will help you obtain an overview of storytelling in science and business communication.

This workshop will help you to use storytelling as a meaningful tool in digital and printed media as well as face-to-face events.
