Customized Workshops from Kathalaya

“Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand.” Confucius 450 BC

We all share stories like we share our breath, with all humanity. You are connected with everyone through this beautiful medium called STORIES.  By paying attention to stories your sense of separateness is dissolved. Special workshops help us hone our skills and explore new ways and techniques of using storytelling, and help us understand storytelling in more ways than one. 

Corporate Workshops

Storytelling is a skill and a craft that can be learnt. At the International Academy of Storytelling IAST we  help  you to combine inspiration with information by using storytelling as a tool for the modern day professional to engage inspire and realise their potential.
Kathalaya’s methodology of storytelling is a blend of the practical, philosophical  and emotional connect.  The power of  using  the storytelling  methodology will inspire leaders to motivate, communicate with confidence  and encourage them to  present their stories  effectively.

Our workshops are highly interactive, experiential and challenges people to step out their comfort zone and think out of the box.
We offer 1/2 day, 1 day  and 2 day workshops for corporate.
