Storytelling Workshop – by Museum Hack

April 9 & 16

Create & Share Your Awesome Stories!

GMIST is excited to be partnering with the award winning Museum Hack out of New York City to offer their own fiery brand of Story Telling through a unique online workshop.   For those who aren’t familiar with Museum Hack, they have revolutionized tours with their story centred approach and cutting edge marketing appeal.  They are well known for their F***ing Awesome Museum Tours! Working with their team-building division a small group (12-15) of tourism operators will get a quick injection of creativity and energy from these Master Storytellers.

Over the course of 120 minutes the Museum Hack Master Storytellers will share key engagement techniques that they use every day as part of their tour deliveries.  Don’t expect to be just an observer in this workshop, though – you will be expected to work in teams to create some unique stories using the 5 elements shared with you.   This is sure to be a highly entertaining and a quick hit of energy and creativity for your business!
