Communication is not about words. It’s also about how words can be intelligently used to engage with others. It’s at its best when words conjure stories. A story that becomes a beautiful memory for your listener/audience/interlocutor. Let’s look at how we can become good storytellers to express our ideas. In this talk, Vikram Sridhar would share with us the building bricks of storytelling and open different possibilities of effective, even memorable, communication
