English Educational Training

Workshop Title:  Hero's Journey   

Time:  11/26 (Sun) 10:30~11:30

Venue:  Room 603


Workshop Introduction: Hero's Journey

The 12 stages of the Hero's journey is the secret to how great books, plays, and movies are created.
 
For us Toastmasters this is a great structure for a speech, especially if you're speaking about a universal subject that the entire audience can relate to (essential for winning speeches).
 
By learning how to use this storytelling approach, you will tap into a powerful, unconscious reservoir in your audience: the shared experience of overcoming life's hurdles, of striving to excel and triumph. When your stories touch this, your audience will not only hear your message, they will remember it!
