Why is Storytelling Important?

I recently hosted a webinar on the topic of “Why is Storytelling Important?” You can check out the video replay below.

I talked about how humans evolved with stories. Storytelling is fundamental in how we understand our world, and also how the earliest humans formed societies. I finished it off with three useful tips for storytelling that can be applied to all aspects of life.

The book I reference in the video is called Sapians: A Brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari.

You can see the news clip about the woman who claimed she got a neurological disorder from a flu shot here. And she gets debunked here.

Lastly, the workshop I mentioned at the end of the webinar is Captivate Your Audience with Storytelling. It will be a three hour online workshop that will walk you through a step-by-step process for crafting a story for public delivery.
