Storytelling for Business - Demonstrating Your Brand Promises with Impactful Narratives

There's nothing like a well-told story. Storytelling connects us, helps us make sense of what's happening, and communicates our values and beliefs. A good story makes us think and feel, and speaks to us in ways that numbers, data, and presentation slides simply can't. Please join us with executive coach and trainer Donna Schwarz who will guide us through an interactive session where you will learn how to communicate your brand promise through engaging memorable narratives.
