As we all have a story to tell, whether it’s personal or professional, we’ve chosen Expressing Yourself, from our Communication & Social Skills range as Module of the Month for January, in celebration of National Storytelling Week, which runs from January 26 – February 2.
The festival, which is run by the Society for Storytelling, is a means of supporting and promoting oral storytelling in the UK, as this ancient artform continues to be a vibrant part of culture around the world, communicating experiences and encouraging the use of creative imagination.
The first festival was run 19 years ago, and the annual celebration has continued to grow in popularity, with events taking place in storytelling clubs, theatres, museums, schools, hospitals and care homes, where folk tales, myths, legends and personal stories are shared.
However, storytelling isn’t just a personal experience, it can be a professional one as well, with each brand sharing their own ideas, history and purpose with consumers in a bid to attract attention and custom.
That’s why we’ve made our Expressing Yourself course, Module of the Month as it helps you prepare for public speaking, find your voice and understand the impact of non-verbal communication. To access the course for free, click here!
