Storytelling for Business
We worked with WorkJuggle to deliver a storytelling for business workshop with our lean management team. We asked for their expertise to help us disseminate our strategy to our teams across the globe so our teams would better understand our vision getting everyone behind the strategy. We found working with the WorkJuggle team to be a very collaborative experience and they brought great energy to an immersive learning experience. I would highly recommend partnering with WorkJuggle.
People connect with people and their ideas on a human level. The world of work is no different and that is why it’s so important to understand how to craft a story so we can influence and inspire those who we work with. Our interactive session looks at the rules and structure to craft a story so that we are able to deliver memorable presentations, pitch ideas effectively and work with clients and colleagues with confidence and authenticity. We think we can all agree it is time to step away from the powerpoint!

Our interactive session looks at the rules and structure to craft a story. These include keeping passion at the core, making connections, being memorable, persuasive and eliciting an emotional response in the recipient.

For example, it can be used to:
- Connect people to their work
- Persuade a data driven business case
- Advocate for an idea in the workplace
- Negotiate to achieve a particular outcome
- Persuade and motivate a team/management/investors
- Change people’s attitudes and behaviours.
Our team had a moment yesterday when we all just clicked in unison. I personally feel that that bond we made quickly and under pressure, will help us all as we progress in the coming. And we have Fergal to thank for that. He really upped everyone’s game.”
“I think Fergal and Melissa are absolute masters of their trade. It’s a 10/10 from me. They’ve ground me to the bone, but I think I’ve come out better because of it. I can’t thank you and your team enough.”

I can’t recommend WorkJuggle enough.””
