How To Snap! Lunch and Learn Workshop
Have you snapped anyone lately? This doesn’t mean participating a heated discussion or argument. Snapping is messaging via the app SnapChat. If you haven’t had time to explore this mystifying platform, never fear, we are here to help!
Snap Chat is a video and photo-based messaging app. The reason why people and brands are flocking to it is because it is one of the only social media platforms that offer true storytelling capabilities. How is that you ask? Isn’t it just a private messaging app for teenagers and uni students. Technically yes and yes, but it is also so much more!
The gold of SnapChat the ‘Stories’ function. Stories give people the ability to publish live content to a story that can be viewed by anyone who has added you on SnapChat. The public nature of a ‘story’ means that it is a good way to ‘show’ people snippets of your life. In this brief intro workshop, we will explore building a live story together.
In this Lunchtime session, we will teach you to –
- Keep it ‘Snappy’
- ‘Show’ Don’t ‘Tell’

Stories are what create and maintain cultures. They shape not only how we see ourselves, but how we see the world. Storytelling is part of communicating effectively, as well as create cultures around our collective narrative.

Storytelling For Data and Presentations – Lunch and Learn Workshop
A well-constructed presentation contains data to support a viable solution to a problem. Yet, not all presentations are able to leave a lasting impression.
Why is this? Because people find it difficult to retain information on its own. Attaching key data points to a story creates a sticky message that is simple to understand and repeat. Why? Because people forget information and remember stories.
Try to remember an exact number from a key statistic in a report or article you read recently. Now try and remember how many dwarves Snow White lived with and how many bears Goldilocks encountered in a cottage in the woods.
Your answers may sound something like this – Not sure, 7 and 3. Sound about right?
