Due to the ongoing Corona pandemic and the related problem of meeting live, we have decided to let the club rest for the time being and to start with new energy as soon as live meetings are possible.
Do you want to sell your product or communicate complicated issues in a comprehensible way? Do you want your speech at your parents‘ golden wedding anniversary to be exemplary?
With Storytelling you do everything right, because Storytelling is the method to get your message across:
- to convey information in an appealing way
- to arouse interest
- to bind customers
Because: Information is in the ear – and stays in the head.
In our new bilingual Toastmasters Club „Hamburg Storytellers“, we use the elements of storytelling to create impressive speeches and presentations together, with which you can score points anywhere. And not only that. Based on the Toastmasters International programme and its method of feedback, we strengthen our confidence in front of audiences, sharpen our leadership qualities and promote our personal growth.
„Everyone’s story matters.“
„The most powerful person in the world is the story teller. The story teller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation that is to come.“
„Children are told stories so that they fall asleep – adults so that they wake up.“
„To hell with facts! We need stories!“
„We understand everything in human life through stories.“
What is storytelling
Storytelling is a rhetorical technique that is used to pass on knowledge in the form of images, metaphors and other methods. It has a long tradition, because before humans passed on their knowledge in written form, they passed it on orally in the form of narrated stories.
Through dramaturgy, subtexts are created which make it possible to remember over a long period of time. But not only the spoken text is important. Gestures, facial expressions and the voice are also part of storytelling.
Storytelling can convey life experiences, initiate thought processes, point out problems, stimulate behavioural changes and much more.
Who we are
As Hamburg Storyteller we are members of Toastmasters International and thus actively involved in this organisation. Toastmasters International was founded in 1924 in the USA and is an internationally active non-profit organisation to promote effective communication, rhetoric and leadership skills.
„Stories inspire and fascinate people. They stimulate the imagination and thus ensure that the content remains in our memories.
„Storytelling can help us to understand ourselves better, to see more clearly what is important to us in life and what we want to change about it.“
„I love stories and can never get bored of listening to a good story.“
How we work
With the elements of storytelling, we will create impressive speeches and presentations together, with which you can score points anywhere. And not only that. On the basis of Toastmasters International’s training programme „Pathways“ and its method of feedback, we strengthen our confidence in front of audiences, sharpen our leadership skills and promote our personal growth.
