Awaken the Storytelling Giant in You: How to Use Stories to Engage, Persuade, and Inspire

Register for this Event  

In all organizations, at all levels, we face universal workplace challenges: how to inspire the team, how to secure budget approval, how to take leadership to the next level. The right stories–personal, authentic, inspiring–can turn these challenges into opportunities. The Chief Storyteller® shows you how to turn your personal experiences into powerful stories that engage and inspire your stakeholders.

Join B Local Mid-Atlantic and Chief Storyteller® Ira for a hands-on program where you will apply a universal storytelling framework to develop high-impact workplace stories. Learn how to use your voice, body, and words together to be a more effective communicator. Come away from the program with more confidence in delivering inspiring stories to any audience.

Please join us for a hands-on interactive workshop packed with networking, sharing best practices and making connections! Registration includes a 90 minute workshop, light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. Bar service will be available.
