About The Event
Storytelling has been a method of communication and connection for people since the beginning of time, and yet, we so often neglect it as a way to connect with donors and each other. In this session, we’ll take a deep dive on where you can use storytelling, how to craft the perfect story, and using storytelling to share about people a little bit better. Join Laura Schumacher on this journey with a little bit of nerd thrown in: Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra.
