Is there a change that you would like to make at work, but you are struggling to get heard?

Using the simple structure of a story can help you to clearly identify your message and get yourself heard.

TheWholeStory, who run the NHS Live Speaking for Success workshops, believe that using their StoryMap will help you to articulate and communicate your message with greater impact. It is one of the many tools of storytelling that will help you to communicate what you want to say, whether in a meeting or when giving a presentation.
