About this class

Our brains seem to be hardwired for story. We binge watch our favorite shows or find ourselves unable to put a book down because we all love a good story. Yet storytelling is often left out of the office and boardrooms. Facts and figures have their place, but they seldom inspire or gain buy-in from colleagues or investors.

In this class, you’ll learn how to utilize storytelling techniques that can help your startup or project pitch as well as your presentations at work or on a conference stage.

We’ll have an opportunity to practice your pitches or presentations and offer a supportive space for constructive feedback from the instructor and your fellow students.

The best place to park is in the structure off of Colorado and 2nd St. The first 90 minutes are free (269 Colorado Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90401).

The end of the Expo Line is the Downtown Santa Monica station, which is a 5-minute walk to campus.

The 733 bus also ends in Santa Monica directly in front of our building.
