About this Event
We all have a story to tell. But how do we tell a story?
How we can and we should share it with our audience? How can we make an impact with our stories?
The way we share our story, the platform and means we use, will give us the opportunity to amplify our voices and reach out to others.
Stories break stereotypes, open up for opportunities, create connections. Discover with me how you can tell or write a story, using the basics of journalism, and how you can also use these stories in your business, community, NGO…
In this event:
-We will have a look at the 5Ws (Who, What, Where, When, Why)
-Different way of structuring and delivering a story (article, podcast, video..)
