About this workshop:

Join us for a three-part workshop experience where, you will use creative tools and techniques to tell a story that serves you both personally and professionally.

What you do will never define you. Who you are always will.
— Abby Wambach

It begins with telling your Origin Story. This type of story is a strategic, creative, and meaningful way to answer the question, “How did you get to where you are now?” — whether you run your own business, are looking to tell the story of your career path (including its twists and turns), or want to find the right balance of strength and vulnerability in your communication.

The questions ‘Why are we here?’ and ‘Where did we come from?’ are very good ones, and we all find ourselves asking them on the day we begin the grow up.
— Philip Pullman

In the Small Group Intensive you will brainstorm, draft, and share a version of your story with your cohort. In the follow-up Story Labs sessions, you will have the chance to digest everything from the intensive, take in the feedback and continue to fine tune your story, as well as learn from the other stories in your group. By the time you leave your Story Strategy session, you will have a polished Origin Story and a personalized action plan for bringing it into the world — whether as part of a keynote, as a video on your website, or a conversation starter with clients and colleagues.

There is power in sharing your personal experience.
