Part One — Craft Your Compelling Communication

Telling the tale of your company, team, product or service can be a powerful way of communicating with important stakeholders. Join WBDC for this interactive program to explore your themes, identify stories for your message, and craft language for your communication.

The workshop will include the opportunity to decide which key messages to communicate as a result of identifying different themes in the company. Additionally, decide how the stories you are creating can be told through characters, challenges, turning points, and the culmination of the tale.

Part Two — Practicing Your Presentation

The next and vital step is to test the stories you have crafted, polishing your presentation through practice. The workshop will include time dedicated to presenting to the group in a supportive learning environment in addition to constructive thoughts on refining your approach. This is an opportunity to weave the tale you have created into your company’s narrative.
