- What is storytelling?
- How do the world’s top speakers use stories to deliver their message?
- How can storytelling be of use in a business environment?
We've been misled. We were taught that the key to great presentations is to speak loudly, move around the stage and look everyone in the eye. But that's just not true. The most important skill for giving a good presentation is the ability to tell a story. It's the ability to take massive amounts of data, numbers, and messages and package them into a sharp, concise and compelling story. In an age when good ideas can change the world in a heartbeat, the ability to communicate your ideas to your superiors, investors, customers or board of directors is an invaluable business skill.
Content is adapted and customized to your company’s particular needs and circumstances.
For companies that understand that the ability to communicate ideas to other members of the organization is crucial for the company’s success; for companies who understand that they can boost sales and improve their image by teaching employees to become better storytellers. For start-up companies that understand that their investors sit through hundreds of presentations a year, so they better show up with an unforgettable story to introduce their products and ideas. For all types of academic institutions who aspire to boost their reputation and who understand that they must complement their professional knowledge with great storytelling skills.
So, please forget everything you thought you knew about public speaking. We invite you to take part in an intensive workshop, which will teach you how to tell a story and deliver a presentation like a true professional, providing you with valuable tools that will enable you to succeed in business and in life.
Participants will deliver short presentations, applying the tools they’ve acquired in the course of the workshop. Presenters will receive professional feedback from their mentors and classmates.
Our name is Leave a Mark and we create powerful presentations through storytelling. We chose our name because we believe that’s the main function of a great presentation – to leave a mark. We work with politicians, CEOs, senior managers, start-up entrepreneurs and with anyone who wants to become a better leader by delivering stronger messages. We’ve been running our workshops for many years now, and we’ve had the honor to host international leaders such as HP, Google Partners, Dell EMC, Bank Hapoalim, as well as renowned academic institutions, such as the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, The Ono Academic College, Habetzefer – Israel’s Advertising Agencies Academy, and more.
Founder of presentation company Leave a Mark. Specializes in creating presentations. Worked with politicians, CEOs, senior managers, start-up entrepreneurs, and anyone who wants their voice heard. Former senior advertiser at Reuveni Pridan IPG and YehoshuaTBWA; VP of Strategy at advertising firm Bruckner Neta Yaar.
The company's training director. Over eight years' experience developing training programs for communication and public speaking. Specializes in training, consultation, and professional mentoring for a variety of clients, mainly from the field of education.
Instructor and content developer. Has over 15 years of experience in teaching, group instruction, psychodrama, and training a wide range of audiences and age groups.
You will acquire valuable tools and knowledge and become acquainted with the world of storytelling. During the workshop, you'll be developing your own project, using your own materials. In a more general sense, you'll have acquired the tools and knowledge that will allow you to create spectacular presentations for any occasion.
If you train, it becomes stronger. Otherwise, it wastes away. Our workshops will make sure you get plenty of exercise and acquire the tools to become excellent presenters.
Unfortunately, we came out of them even more stressed and confused than we were to begin with. We believe that the ability to tell a clear and cohesive story is the number one contributor to the quality of your presentation. It's true that pacing around the stage and making eye contact is important, but all those techniques pale in comparison with strong storytelling skills. Take Moses, for example – you know, the one who led his people through the desert for forty years. He didn't have good speaking skills. In fact, he even stuttered. But none of that matters when your story involves the promise of a land of milk and honey.
We can discuss your specific needs during our initial consultation and adapt the workshop's content, location, and length accordingly.
