I've talked about storytelling before and I find that a skill that I need to master. Well, here is the ultimate, compact, on-the-stage storytelling challenge. We all have stories and as the how-to video above shows, there are different ways to frame our stories.
I like this idea because:
- It forces you pull your thoughts together into a short version. No rambling allowed.
- It forces you to rationalize your slides. No time for wasted, nonsense in Powerpoint.
- And it forces you to think about what is your story? Do you have a story?
This is a cool idea. I'd love to go see one of these and perhaps try out one. Take a look at a few of the videos above. I looked at the one on Restoring the Archimedes Palimpsest.
If you have a faith story, can you tell it in 5 minutes? If you have some cause, can you tell someone about it in 5 minutes?
Let me know what you think about this.
