We invite you to celebrate World Storytelling Day with StoryFor.Me!

What is it about?

We tell stories all the time even without realizing it. Storytelling is what You do on a job interview, a date and at work. A good storyteller is one who knows how to introduce himself, make a memorable speech, deliver a fascinating presentation, conduct the sales successfully or make a catchy PR release. In fact, it is more than that. It is about finding and developing Your own story.


Format:

We offer a 4-days intense dive into storytelling. A unique blend of Lithuanian and best International experts from Federation of European Storytelling (FEST) both on the stage and in the audience.


Choose what you want:

more theory to know how storytelling works – conference
more practice to get the skills – 1-3 days of training
both – take full package!


Dates: March 20-23, 2018
