Lunch & Learn Webinar: Storytelling (part 1/2)

February 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Lunch and Learn Series - Storytelling

Lunch & Learn Series with RBC

WBE Canada and RBC invite all Certified WBEs to our first Lunch & Learn series! Our first webinar will focus on the topic of Storytelling. The two-part session will walk participants through the art of storytelling and how to apply it to your next presentation to captivate and influence your audience.

Part 1 – Storytelling
The workshop will start by focusing on the key elements of any successful presentation or story: context, influence, and engagement. These 3 elements will continue to be looked at as we move through the different stages of building a story. First, context corresponds to your preparation where we will dig into clarifying the objective, understanding your audience, and assembling the content for your story. Next, we will explore how a wireframe can, not only help transition your preparation material into a story but help engineer the audience experience.

At the end of this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to set the stage for your story by clarifying your objectives, understanding your audience, and organizing your content effectively
  • Gain insights into how to craft a story that resonates with your audience, influencing their perspective and actions
  • Explore strategies to keep the audience engaged, ensuring that the story remains compelling and impactful




Join us for Part 2! Lunch & Learn Series: Basic PowerPoint Tips & Visualization on March 14, 1-2 pm ET

Meet the Presenter

Courtney FormosaCourtney Formosa

Courtney is a digital strategy professional with a relentless passion for leveraging technology to propel RBC to the next level while cultivating a culture of collaboration and innovation. Her career has been marked by a consistent track record of driving technology adoption within the finance industry, complemented by extensive expertise in process design, enterprise-scale system migrations, and data & analytics. Courtney thrives on translating vision into action, empowering organizations to harness the full potential of digital transformation, and fostering an environment for others to thrive. She is presently in the process of completing her MBA with a specialization in Management of Technology.

The above skills and experience has helped Courtney hone her skill of ‘Storytelling’ and PowerPoint through the need to get buy-in of stakeholders for transformation. Storytelling is critical for swaying difficult stakeholders (or clients) and getting a consensus. It requires one to think more strategically about the content they are sharing, how the audience will receive the message, and the information an individual requires to make the decision presented to them. When paired with PowerPoint skills which bring your slides to the next level by leveraging visualization best practices, your presentations will be more professional and will captivate your audience.
