WHAT MAKES AN AMAZING STORYTELLER
The best storytellers find and identify with their audiences. Be it film, tv, commercial, print, video, script, book, poem, music, photography, fashion, beauty or makeup, every story has an origin and every story has an audience.
The best stories connect with the audience and bridge the gap between you and me. A storyteller should engage, listen and interact with their audience. Great storyteller leaders listen, engage and interact with their audience.
Connecting is more important than ever.
