Max has a problem. He's trying to develop instruction that will make an impact on employees, but from his very first conversation with stakeholders, he's missing something: a great story for training. You can help him. In this session, you'll discover how to analyze for stories, use the Story Design model to create characters in conflict and deliver stories using tools you already own. Corporate L&D managers, instructional designers and consultants will enjoy a highly interactive, fun session that build storytelling chops for putting content into context.

Application on the job

1) Ask the right questions of stakeholders and subject matter experts to unearth stories.

2) Design stories and training activities that connect concretely to learning objectives.

3) Develop stories using tools you already own.

Please note: the program begins at 6:00 pm with informal networking and light refreshments until around 6:15 pm when the evening's formal program begins. The formal program ends at 7:30 pm and another round of informal networking will last for 30 minutes. We provide light snacks and bottled water. Attendees are encouraged to bring light meals with them, such as sandwiches, wraps or salads.
