Steve Jobs said: "The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller".

Storytelling can connect people to their audience and engage people in a way that simple narration of facts cannot.

In this session, we will look at storytelling in Project Management and how incorporating simple techniques can allow us to better communicate our message and engage the audience. We would like the session to be interactive, with the audience also sharing examples to help us all become storytellers.
