Online Learning

Please note: due to the COVID-19 crisis our physical JOT events have been postponed but in their place we’ve been holding regular Zoom sessions where we sharpen our communication skills. These sessions are announced on social media and sent to our database.

Online Storytelling Course

Starting on 3rd June 2020, this is a series of online classes for those who want to promote their product or service by telling a better story. Taking place fortnightly, each session is a standalone module, booked via Eventbrite but delivered through Zoom, and covers 6 different aspects of ‘applied storytelling’. Click HERE for a full course description.

All sessions run from 10.30am-noon and places are available through the links below:

Session 1 (3 June): Introduction to applied storytelling

Session 2: (17 June): Building your story

Session 3 (1 July): Test-driving your own material

Session 4 (15 July): Presentations as storytelling

Session 5 (29 July): Art of conversation

Session 6 (12 August): Online storytelling

Who can benefit?

Self-employed business owners – promote yourselves more effectively.

Company employees – develop soft skills alongside your technical knowledge.

Introverts and extroverts can benefit equally; the format encourages learning and growth through different forms of participation. You can quietly absorb what you hear and it’s up to you what you share openly with others.
