May Sharing Session ~ Storytelling (entertainment.connection.motivation)

Sharing Session 23 May
STORYTELLING ~ entertainment. connection. motivation

Have you ever wonder how some of the people you met are better story-tellers than others? And how they actually captivate and engage their audience so well that you could visualise their stories in your mind. Knowing and applying the art of storytelling will not only strengthen your stories, but also develop the desired interest in the audience.

Join our volunteer speakers, Moses Sia and Sylvia Sim who will share about their own storytelling experiences! Moses, an educator with more than 15 years of teaching experience, will guide you through the 101 of Storytelling using of digital technology. Sylvia who has published 5 books in celebration of SG50, will talk about her own experience in putting the stories together for publication.
