Workshops

If you are an ORAL communicator of any kind, these workshops will help you with your story and the telling of it.

If you want to be a better ORAL communicator and want to learn how to involve the listeners.


You will learn

  • how to find the good stories
  • create oral storytelling out of complicated written abstracts
  • how to ground yourself and notice when you don’t
  • adjust the story to the listeners. You want active listeners, even if they are behind a screen
  • embody the story
  • find the interaction between words and pauses



I can do this workshop in Danish, Swedish or English.

ONE DAY Online Workshop 


In this workshop for storytelling beginners we will focus on how to find a good story and once you have found it then how to activate the inner filmscreen.


It doesn't matter what kind of story you would like to tell, I will always give you useful feedback.

And because we work in the tradition of a folkehøjskole, you fill find that the rest of the group will provide you with feedback that can sharpen your telling. 


This one day online workshop is more than just an introduction to storytelling and how to tell one specific story.

We will also create one story in the whole group, so you can feel how it is to create a story from scrath.


"Svend is a wonderful teacher! He is passionate about the world of story and manages to detect the strength and weaknesses within the tale. His workshops are joyful with valuable as well as kind feedback. Even though the workshops are online now, he is able to connect with each and everyone – creating a vibrant and engaged environment. I highly recommend working with Svend and discover new and surprising ways in your telling." Franziska Droll, tourguide and storyteller.

You are invited to bring your work in progress to the workshop where we will work together to really sharpen your story, sharpen your telling and leave with a tale which is much clearer and brighter than when you began.


In the week between the two workshops you will go out into the real world and see if the world really needs that story and how you improve your telling only by telling.


  • Introduction to the art of telling a story
  • Creating new stories
  • Feedback to a story you are working on
  • Choose a story to work on in between the workshops
