Story Acquisition with Shawn Callahan

Presenter – Shawn Callahan – Founder of Anecdote
“Travelling the world helping leaders and sellers be better oral storytellers”

Story professionals love to teach story structures. Whether it’s Fretag’s three act structure, the hero’s journey or simple story spines, we often take students through how a story is constructed. But this is like learning a language by just learning the grammar. How do natural storytellers learn their skills? Again, like learning a language, it’s helpful to immerse yourself in it. This workshop is a practical exploration of story acquisition and how we create an effective environment to learn through immersion.
