How to Tell Stories that Connect Emotionally with Marsha Shandur
London-born Marsha Shandur holds a superpower: the power of storytelling.
Marsha credits her love of storytelling to her late grandmother, whom she describes as unintentionally comedic. She regards her grandmother’s last years as her grandmother’s funniest years for her inadvertent mixing of fantasy and reality. Having been raised surrounded by stories, Marsha learned how to harness this talent and sought it out to achieve the power of persuasion, empathy, and connection.
In this episode, she walks us through what makes a good storyteller by coaching us on how to craft compelling stories and what our brain chemistry has to do with it. Marsha also explains how the universal catalyst for connection is stories, how to tell a great story, and the three essential parts to storytelling: voice over, montage, and action scenes.
She now runs Toronto’s biggest storytelling show, True Stories (Told Live), and offers workshops to help you improve your storytelling on her site Yes Yes Marsha. Through her passion for storytelling, she has accumulated features in BBC, Forbes, and Mashable.
