Telling stories is an essential way that we connect with each other, and a tool in building empathy and understanding amongst a group of people. Stories serve different functions and uses: to entertain, to inform or to unify.

This practical masterclass will begin to explore stories and the fundamental skills of communication.

It introduces you to the ways that RADA's techniques and structures of storytelling can increase the power of your communication in a corporate setting.
