Storytelling for academics - tailor-made course

Storytelling is the art of telling stories. It's not just about sharing facts: it's about creating an emotional connection with your audience. Stories can clarify complex topics and improve engagement. Facts and research findings support your story so that it really reaches your target audience. 

This course provides academics with the skills to present their research and ideas more effectively through storytelling, with a focus on clear communication, engagement and inspiring audiences.
