THIS IS A BRAND NEW ONE-DAY WORKSHOP FOR THOSE WORKING IN NONPROFITS

Storytelling is identified as one of the essential competencies required of today's non-profit leaders. In this workshop participants learn to use stories to build strong connections, to engage their team, their funders and their clients, and to call more people to action. You will get hands-on practice, listen to great examples of powerful storytelling, and take away tools that will help you shape stories for different audiences.
