LEANSTORY - Storytelling for Innovators, Disruptors, and Change-Agents

Donkey Wheel House Events has partnered with Get Storied to bring you this storytelling workshop on how to communicate big ideas and pitch disruptive innovation.

Participants learn a 3-step methodology for how to craft and present a narrative that inspires and influences in the face of deep resistance.

Storytelling is more than theatrical performance or telling good anecdotes. It’s about communicating with context, empathy, relevance, imagination, and truth – in an authentic way that makes a profound connection. You have a big story to tell. It’s complex and world-changing. Yet hard to explain. If only you could translate the message, people would benefit immensely.

Who is this for?

LeanStory is a proven storytelling approach for pitching any breakthrough idea, product, or message. Specifically designed for innovators and change-makers who challenge the current model of reality. Learn how to get others to believe in your story.

Our program receives reviews at Google, Deloitte, and NASDAQ among other places. The methodology equally works with audiences of entrepreneurs, executives, enterprise sales leads, engineers, and social change-agents. LeanStory is a game-changing framework for anyone with a big story to tell.
