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’
  • Get Personal With Your Story

2 Hour Workshop – Twitter for Speakers, Conference Goers and Thought Leaders!


“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

– Abraham Lincoln

Chart the future; connect the dots between the present and your goals. 

What is Twitter and how does it help us define our futures? Twitter allows us to find people who share your vision. A healthy network is built by intelligently leveraging the links between your contacts and goals. Twitter allows us to curate our feeds and find the right people to talk to with very few barriers. You don’t have to be “Friends” with someone to exchange ideas. It is open and egalitarian. You decide who to talk!

The future is wide open. The time to connect, explore and curate your Twitter experience is now. Become part of Twitterversity and I will teach you to tweet with the best of them!

Twitter for Thinkers, Explorers and Storytellers facilitates the construction of your online community. Enrol in Twitterversity! I will teach you about the basics of Twitter, how to build an online persona, who to Tweet to and what to Tweet about.

We will focus on the necessity of building a narrative into your digital strategy. It is imperative to convey a simple message to your community that represents who you are. The next step is finding the right people. A community grown slowly on the correct path will eventually propagate itself. Set your message apart by speaking directly to the few and they will spread it to the many.

I will also explore how the recent changes with Twitter allow for visual content sharing. Now your videos, live streaming and images can improve your ability to convey what it is you uniquely do to the Twitterverse!

Please note there is a pre-task one-page document which must be done before the course and brought to class with you. When you purchase your ticket I will send you the file. Please give yourself time to fill it out properly. This is very important to get the most out of this course. 

What you will need –

  • A Twitter Account
  • A Basic Understanding of Twitter
  • Your Own Laptop or tablet (iPad) or smartphone
  • A pen and paper
  • A vision statement describing who you are, what you do and why you do it
  • The twitter handle, or Twitter Account of a person you would love to talk to. This can be anyone as long as they have an active Twitter account.

3 Hour Workshop – STORYTELLING: The Interactive Board Game

Learn the fundamentals of storytelling via an interactive storytelling board game. Each player will participate in creating a narrative that has a theme and a compelling message.

The game is played with 2 or 3 teams depending on numbers of roughly 10 people each.

Creating a story doesn’t have to be hard or lonely. I have created a way for people to come together in a collaborative way to tell a single story. I have developed an interactive board game to train teams of people the fundamentals of story structure.

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. Learning the fundamentals of storytelling in a fun and interactive way will facilitate change in your organisation, business or life through the power of story.

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?

Learn the fundamentals of storytelling via an interactive group storytelling lunch and learn session.

In this 1 hour session we –

  • Understand and identify the types of data that need a story
  • Create the main message and short narrative to support a key data points
