Happy New Year! Do you have resolutions this year? This is a great time to take a fresh look at all areas of our life and evaluate what is working for us and where we want to make improvements. Now is the time to set intentions for what we want to accomplish over the next 12 months, whether it is personal goals, health, and wellness, or professional growth. It can be an exciting process to think about what specific things we want to focus on for the year. A good way to help make resolutions a reality is to identify specific actions you can commit to that will help get you closer to your goals.

If strengthening your professional skills as a communicator is one of the items on your resolutions list, IABC/San Diego has just what you need to start the year off right. Join us for a valuable 2-hour workshop: “Storytelling in Business: How to Motivate, Inform & Inspire in Today’s Busy World. The workshop will be held from 8 to 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 12, at UCSD Extension. Whether you’re preparing a speech, introducing a new idea or asking for a raise, a well-picked and delivered story is one of the most – if not the most – powerful tools we have to motivate others. This workshop will give you skills you can put to use right away to improve storytelling in your communications.

The best part? It is only $5 for members to attend and breakfast is included! (The cost is $30 for non-members who might like to attend with you.) Register today to learn how to leverage the power of storytelling in your communications.

We also have other great things in store for 2017, including more fun networking events and professional development opportunities. Maybe one of your resolutions is to attend at least three IABC events this year? With so much to choose from, you’ll find the resources to help support your professional goals, whether it is networking more, strengthening your skills, or learning something new.

I hope to see you at an upcoming event!

Wishing you the very best for 2017,

Anna Davison
President, IABC/San Diego
