[MBA OPEN CLASS] Feb. 9th | Are you an effective storyteller?


“Are you an effective storyteller?“

Speaker: Prof. Patrick Newell (Shizenkan University)

Thursday, February 9th, 19:00-20:30 (JST)

Venue: Shizenkan Campus (Nihonbashi, Tokyo) and Zoom 



How do you gain empathy and trust from others to support your idea and take action? Daily we share our thoughts, and it is essential to have the skills to effectively communicate our ideas and visions to gain support to grow.


In this session, you will learn how to effectively construct a storyline to increase your probability of success by utilizing the art of storytelling techniques mastered by Aristotle and Steve Jobs. Do you set the scene, grab your audience with emotion around the challenges, share the solutions and share a call to action when telling a story? The first step to mastery is to understand the science behind the art of storytelling clearly.


Join Professor Patrick Newell, Author of “TED Power” and one of the prominent storytelling guides in Japan, at this free hybrid session to better understand the art of storytelling. This session is available on campus at Shizenkan University to a limited number of participants and online.
