The art and science of presenting ideas
Transforming information into a compelling narrative can be learned
Create fresh narratives
The Storyboard Method will teach you how to create new narratives for your personal or professional projects. It will also inspire you to replace or transform stories that no longer work.
Communicate with mastery
You will learn to find your stories, put them into words, visualize them and transmit them with confidence in any format.
Connect with your audience
You will connect with diverse audiences with creativity, strategy and imagination, conveying stories that are memorable and meaningful to them.
Incorporate new rituals
You will have a collection of reliable tools to call on whenever you need them and which will help you to adopt new habits in the way you work.
Presenting ideas with art and skill is vital for any professional. One of the greatest powers a person can have is the ability to construct his or her own stories — stories that connect to people. The whole purpose of this method is to give you that power.
In a world flooded with pieces of information, bits of data, fragments of ideas, sounds, images, and commands, what we are all looking for is skilled telling -- story and narratives that are relevant to our lives.
We are inviting you to take a seat in the director's chair, where you will activate your curiosity and feel more alert.
You may need to create a pitch, transmit a purpose or mission, visualize a new project, innovate a product story or develop a social manifesto. No matter what the challenge is, transforming information into a compelling narrative can be learned.

THINK AND COMMUNICATE YOUR IDEAS WITH THE STORYBOARD METHOD
4 steps and 10 tools collected in a book that will help you clarify your ideas, open up new perspectives and transform information into a captivating narrative.
Why the word method?
Theory and practice live far away from each other, disconnected.
And we are caught in the gap. This is why we need a method. A method is a way to do something, a clear route for focusing our thinking and taking action.
Having a method nudges us out of immobility and futile activity; it shows us how to do something differently. It helps us to gain both confidence and mastery.
This way, the theory is transformed into something we can apply. The connection is made; gone is the gap.
Why the word storyboard?
The idea behind storyboarding is to make the complete picture of the narrative clear to all the people creating it. The technique was born in the film industry, but today it plays a vital role in the production of all kinds of story-creating, well beyond movies.
The magic and power of storyboards is that they combine two types of language: verbal and visual. They awaken the artist and writer within us; the different parts of the brain are activated and act in harmony.
In addition to being one of the 10 tools you will learn, the storyboard serves as a metaphor that reflects the entire process of the method, a process that activates all the talents of the brain to achieve a narrative goal. It turns us into the directors of our own stories.
