Storytelling Skills: Wow Your Crowd Workshop with Kevin Allison, founder of RISK!


From the bar to the boardroom, a well-told tale makes the best impression. The Story Studio’s “Wow Your Crowd” workshop, taught by Kevin Allison, provides students with the tools to grab listener’s attention, appeal to their emotions and maybe even inspire their action. Kevin creates a friendly, social environment in which you can rehearse your work and receive feedback. You’ll learn how to include the 6 Senses to trigger emotional responses. You’ll master the 5 Beats of classic story structure. And you’ll learn how to drive a narrative arc toward a resonant end. Your audience will remember the ideas conveyed in your story long after you have gone. This workshop is an overview of some of the tools and principles taught by Kevin Allison in his 6-week storytelling class at The Story Studio in New York City.
