“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.
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.
It was a wonderful experience to see the master in action. The way the workshop is being conducted is excellent. It is simple, insightful and energizing.
- G. Krishna, Senior Consultant, Mercuri international
