Telling stories is the most powerful way to communicate. But only if your story is good and told well. In this workshop you will learn how write a story that engages people, motivates them to act and, ultimately, advances the mission of your organization. We will explore
what makes a good story and how to write a story that is both engaging and motivating.

Presenter Molly Mead will use examples that come from you. Please send her an example of a written story you are currently using or hope to use molly@praxiscg.com. Or, if that is a bit intimidating, find a story that you find engaging and send it.
