10 Jan 2017, by Chantal Ramirez in Event Archive

Master the Powerful Art of Storytelling in Just Two Hours, with IABC of San Diego


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. The use of stories and storytelling is even more essential in the digital age, where the amount of time you have to capture your audience’s attention is rapidly dwindling.With your first word, the countdown begins. Those who use a compelling story are the ones that engage and win over their audiences.

Join us on the morning of January 12 for the highly interactive, 2-hour workshop“Storytelling in Business: How to Motivate, Inform & Inspire In Today’s Busy World.” Erin McConlogue will lead participants through a proven approach to leveraging the power of storytelling that is specially designed to attract and hold attention while delivering key messages and takeaways that will prompt action.

Come prepared with a story or two (or you can make one up on-the-spot) that you would like to hone and really bring to life. You will have plenty of opportunities to try different approaches until you find the one that fits your own personal style…while inspiring and moving others. And you will have fun in the process, in this low-pressure workshop environment!

Please arrive at 8 am for a light breakfast, coffee and conversation. We will start the workshop promptly at 8:30 am (during which you will be too busy to eat). IABC/San Diego members will receive a big discount off of their registration. Attendance is limited, so please register today!
