A Sense of Storytelling

Monday, October 18, 2010

Oh boy, is it already mid-October? The last occasions to speak at a conference or somewhere inhouse are approaching fast. I, for example, will be speaking on November 11 in Prague about User Experience and Storytelling (I'll be attending the World Usability Day there).

Well, speaking of Storytelling and having gigs: I came cross an interesting blog post called Storytelling Techniques: 9 Guidelines for Storytelling In Any Situation.

Having a good sense of storytelling techniques is important for people involved in any form of communication. Unlike other ways to express a story, storytelling takes place in the moment between the storyteller and listener. It is a unique experience. Here are nine storytelling tips to use when you want to make the most of the story you have chosen.

Take a look at those 9 points the author is making. They should help you to beef up your next presentation I recon... at least I hope they will do so for mine.
