Story-Telling With a Point: Advance Your Career by Showing When You Tell

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Would you expect to find a fork in a drawer labeled 'spoons, etc.'?
     Maybe- you might not want to count on it!

We are all judged by how we introduce ourselves, and whether we are seeking a job or a chance for our company to offer products and services to a new customer, or when we rely on written materials to make that introduction for us.

In the routine flurry of 'LOL', 'RSVP', 'WYSIWYG' and 'WTF' (is there at least one you aren't sure about?) messaging of our daily exchanges with people who we already know are on the same page as us, it is easy to forget that these shortcuts undermine our ability to make important connections and nuanced points on what we want to say.

In this short session, you will get
  • Actionable Advice - The Best Kind of Advice: you can do something with it!  (If it isn't your style, it is at least a starting place to improve.)
  • Stories About Applying Storytelling - At Least it IS NOT "Death by Slides"
  • Recommendations You Can Use IMMEDIATELY - Get Something for your Efforts... Right Now
Looking for a "bonus" (or at least a silver lining to not meeting at an in-person event)?  Well, the format offers us a bonus that makes this talk... 
EVEN BETTER!  Now that the event is virtual- at the end of the life session- you will get a chance to practice what you learned and get feedback, even before you get back to your day!
