Storytelling done well (Brisbane)

We all remember story time as children and we share stories with our friends, family and workmates. Our memories are related through stories and we live in stories every day.

Let’s face it, we are all storytellers and story listeners. We are wired to connect to compelling stories. It is reported that 92% of consumers would prefer media messages to feel like a story.

Storytelling is an important, memorable and valuable social tool. It’s time organisations make the most of their messages by making them stories. All not-for-profit and volunteer-based organisations have them – it’s time we create them!

We will cover:

  • steps to create a compelling story
  • how to convert events or activities in to successful stories
  • how to create storytelling part of your overall marketing strategy
  • how to use storytelling to improve the organisation’s reputation
  • defining your voice and personality
  • the tools and resources to transform your organisation
  • And much more …

Who should attend?

  • Anyone who looks after the messaging of an organisation
  • If you want to make the most of your stories
