At a training last year, i thought it appropriate to manage and update my emails, when i saw 'the storytelling topic' appear. I wasn't exactly waiting for a yet another self proclaimed guru on the subject.
From the start, it was clear to me that the session would be entirely different. Seldom have i been absorbed in a matter, by the way it was brought and animated.
The examples, anecdotes and stories were funny, authentic and believable. All what was said and told was highly original and inspiring and served one purpose, to clarify what the 'art of storytelling' encompassed.
During the session i was carried away in a spiral of emotions. I've laughed, i recognised myself in the situations, it was both confronting and funny but never in an attacking way.
It seemed all very spontaneously, but the session had but one purpose, Guido worked on an arc of tension and a clear structure, leading to the clear understanding of what storytelling is all about. Getting the message across and remembered. There's only 1 guru who can use the epitheton 'leading by example' in his field and that is Guido
