Strategic narratives are a form of storytelling, and like all good stories, they need a compelling plot, characters, a climax, and a conclusion. A strategic narrative centres on leaders’ ability to articulate a clear and compelling vision and strategy for the future of the organisation. Rather than focusing on the company’s products or services through a series of bullet points and clip art in a PowerPoint deck, a powerful strategic narrative paints a picture of how a company’s past, present, and future fit together in a broader strategy context.
The workshop will walk the attendees through all steps required to design a strategic business narrative for your company using storytelling techniques from film and other narrative arts.
In this class you will learn:
Why storytelling is still one of the most important skills to master and how it can be applied to strategy and business
The biggest mistakes most startups and enterprises make when presenting their business
Basic storytelling techniques
A framework for aligning your team around a strategic narrative
How you can create a compelling pitch for your company and products
Ways you can present your brand's story to prospects, employees, talents, media and investors
NOTE: this class will not be recorded, however, slides will be sent within 7 days following the session.
