Seminar Description

In our world where we are drowning in information,

how do you stand out?

Tell compelling, well-crafted stories!


In this half-day, interactive, experiential workshop, we will explore why stories work, how to craft them, and culminate with: time to try out your stories with each other and the group. You will go home convinced that storytelling works as the most powerful communication tool in both your professional and personal life.

Stories create connection by creating empathy and trust. And when told well, stories can move people to action: to consider an idea, buy a product or service, or change a behavior or attitude. Storytelling is an easy skill to learn, AND it's a fun, engaging way to communicate.
