How can I start with story telling, I am good at public speaking, had been conducting counselling sessions for all age groups wherein once I tried story telling as well with primary section kids to help develop their spoken skills and being more expressive. How can I take this commercially? Is there any course that will help? Being an unconventional work field should I start working without expecting earning much?

Hi Shakun, good to hear from you. You can start by introducing storytelling tools in your area of work. They say that comic strips and animation are the best ways to discuss / approach a taboo / uneasy subject. Wall posters could really work for you if your workshops are trying to help kids be more expressive. Give them a topic, divide the kids into bunches of say 4 kids per bunch, and ask them to create a small story on a chart paper using the comic strip format, and we all know the comics don't we? See how much fun it would become for the kids and you as well. Also, start using slides in your public speaking assignments. Draw them / design them yourself, because you understand your audience and their communication needs best. Let me know if you want to discuss this more, I would be available for whatever support I can give thru my mentorboard @SHEROES. View Less
