WWE VIRTUAL 5th Friday WorkshopHave I got a story for you!
Telling your story well to promote yourself and your business.
Why stories? As Malcolm Gladwell put it, “It is safe to say that word of mouth is – even in this age of mass communications and multimillion-dollar advertising campaigns – still the most important form of human communication.”
In this session, we’ll explore the research on storytelling and its power to increase your work’s effectiveness and your organization’s bottom line. Why are stories more effective than data in getting people to change their buying habits, among others?
We’ll explore organizations that excel at telling their story and how they continue to do so. Is there a magical formula for success?
Next, we’ll do some hands-on work in crafting our own stories to build our businesses and retain customers, and a listing of storytelling resources will be shared with participants in electronic form.
Dr. Rebecca Christoffel owns Christoffel Conservation and holds positions with two local non-profits dedicated to reptile conservation. In a former life, she taught storytelling in her personal interpretation class at Iowa State University. Rebecca has been telling stories all of her life, and has used the power of storytelling to apply for jobs and grants and promote the conservation of wildlife.
