May 7 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm PDT
Here is the recording of this training: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCOLJi5WERE
Please note, in order to have a quick turn around to get the video to you, we only have auto captions at this time.
We will be holding a highly interactive 2-hour webinar to inspire you and help you hone your stories for advocacy. In the two hours, we will cover:
- Why Must We Tell Our Stories? Stories are proven to help us remember and influence how we think and behave. In short, we begin by making the case that stories are the single most powerful communications tool available.
- How Do You Tell a Memorable and Persuasive Story? The second segment covers the architecture and qualities of compelling stories and how a story is different than a summary or testimonial.
- How Do You Do All That in Under 1 Minute?!?! We will share how to boil your story down to its essence and bring people into your experience for a hyper-brief social post.
- Delivery- We’ll cover some tips and tricks to help you create the best looking and sounding video you can.
