Borrow Screenwriter Techniques to Make Presentations Compelling

Many of the techniques used by TV and movie screenwriters can be repurposed to make any speech, lecture, or presentation much more impactful and memorable. How you begin, how you end, how you link parts together and how you build in an underlying story arc that draws people into your ideas are all things that we can master simply by using techniques borrowed from the toolbox of the professional scriptwriter. In this workshop Andrew Hennigan explains how we can learn these techniques, using examples from well-known movies and TV series. Discover what we can learn by analyzing the bank heist scene from the movie The Dark Knight, the first episode of the TV series Peaky Blinders and much more.

"Borrow Screenwriter Techniques to Make Presentations Compellingcan be packaged as a short talk, a more in-depth lecture, an interactive workshop or as a one-to-one ongoing coaching experience, either face-to-face or through video call. It can also be personalized to suit the needs of specific audiences.
