I was pursing self-designed, ‘Envisioning 21st century global manager’ project and was staying in Bangalore from past few months to finish the last phase of this program. I have joined this Meet up group, just to spend some quality time and learn from others. Every once in a month, I get to know something about love, emotions, inspiration, leadership through the story tellers. Not just listening, I also got opportunities to present my own stories. Bangalore Story telling society became one of the best places for many people like me to get creative, fall into imagination and cross the line to dive deep into a world, we can just dream of. It has helped me improving my public speaking skills, connecting more with the audience and what more? Provided me ability to meet some like minded imaginative people.
So if you are happen to be in Bangalore, come to this Meet-up and if you are not in Bangalore than start a story telling group in your own neighborhood to witness the power of stories.
