INSEAD Entrepreneurship Club and WYSH present: WHAT’S YOUR STORY SLAM
DUAL members are cordially invited to: "WHAT’S YOUR STORY SLAM" on Tue 10/09 organised by the INSEAD Entrepreneurship Club and WYSH
What is a Story Slam?
The Story Slam is a live storytelling competition. All stories must be true and lived by the storytellers. True personal stories told live! Storytellers have 5 minutes each to tell a story based on the show’s theme.
We love how the storyteller connects with the audience without a cellphone or sheets between them. No notes are allowed: stories must be told and not read.
Story Slam features people like YOU — entrepreneurial spirits from INSEAD and beyond — entertaining the audience with the unpredictable, hilarious, and poignant turns that their lives have taken. If you have a story to tell or want to take part in the show, please text via WhatsApp +65 84280925 or email to Anna Ong MBA'09 email@example.com
What is the Theme of the Story Slam?
Theme for the September show is DISTANCE - talk about the time you went the distance, either a long drive, flight or hike. Talk about a time where you went out of your way for love, durian or client? Talk about that emotional distance, between friends, lovers or family members, so close and yet so far or the other way around? Or talk about things past, DISTANT memories or that long shot that you just had to go for. Or that long DISTANCE phone call. All what matters is how Distance means to you.
So come and join us in building a culture of live storytelling here in Singapore.
