This was an amazing ”roller coaster” of stories, interactive sessions, reflection, learning experiences, team work, discovery, introspection and emotion. By the end of the workshop I realized that I had just delivered 4 stories on stage. And all of them were appreciated. The storytelling techniques and the story structures presented in the course were of great help to me.
All this has taken place in a friendly atmosphere, with a lot of positive energy and a group whose members connected in a short time and had an excellent dynamic. By the end of the training, I felt I had gotten richer. I took with me a collection of emotional stories, I made connections with inspiring people and I went beyond some personal barriers.
