Deep Dive Advanced Storytelling Workshop with “Live” Story Coaching
It seems everyone is sharing stories in their communication.

The truth is our storytelling has gotten lazy. We put a picture on a page, share a few facts about the person in the picture and call it a story.

While sharing an engaging mission moment story is both an art and a science – storytelling is a powerful tool when you do it well. This session teaches you how to make changes in your communication that will have a lasting impact.

Lori will provide feedback & coaching for as many stories as possible during this session.

Topics will include:

> Why sharing a mission moment story is what causes people to give MORE
> How to craft an engaging people story
> The importance of YOUR money story
> How to combine your people & money stories to dramatically increase your fundraising this year
