Build and Boost Your Brand – Monthly Storytelling Workshop
November 9, 2019 | 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 9:00am on day Second of the month, repeating until July 1, 2021
Branding is not just for business! Your personal brand IS your business brand.
Everything you say, do and wear says a statement about what you stand for.
Is your brand working for you and your startup?
What about the stories you tell others?
If not, great! Then this workshop is designed for you.
Whenever you walk into a job interview, swipe on Tinder or speak with your grandparents, your brand is speaking for you. You’re telling a story to people with desire or extinguish their inner fire.
Do you have meaningful stories that makes others want to join your startup?
If so, great! Then this workshop is definitely designed for you.
People say we did live a world where WHO you know is more important than WHAT you know …. Actually, HOW you come across to others is the KEY to successful personal and professional relationships.
First we have to uncover our own story before we can share it with others.
In this three-hour intensive workshop, you will:
– Be getting out of your seat and doing uncomfortable shit in the first few minutes to blast through your fears;
– Do three different exercises alone, in pairs and in small groups to start uncovering your personal story;
– Develop your StoryFile so you have a story for every situation;
Walk away with actionable tools, tips and techniques for you to work on further month-by-month;
