Storytelling Workshop
Improve Your Communication Using the Science of Story
June 9, 2021, 9:00am – 12:00noon

A story well-told can make all the difference...

Effective storytelling uses carefully crafted narrative to move people toward a shared understanding or a specific action. Using what we know about the human brain and how it derives meaning can help you and your team leverage your power of story as the ultimate form of communication.  

Imagine if in three hours you could:

  • Structure narrative around what we know about the brain
  • Consistently structure communications using what we know makes the brain engage and remember  
  • Create stories that are remembered by and inspire your target audience
  • Walk away with content that drives action: spurring donations, mobilizing supporters, and more!
Master Storyteller and renowned author Kendall Haven will lead us through a morning of discovery, exploration, and application. As individuals or in teams, you will be introduced to storytelling science, be given the building blocks for crafting compelling stories, then create your own!  

Whether you’ve been working on your stories for years, or you’re staring at an empty page, this workshop will offer you an invaluable perspective on developing stories that inspire, ignite action, and that are unforgettable.  

Harness the power of effective storytelling for the strategic benefit of your organization and society as a whole!  

We encourage changemakers of all types to attend, especially current and aspiring marketers, communicators, fundraisers, and executive directors/CEOs. Teams are encouraged to sign up and will be offered a 20% discount.
