Organizational Storytelling for Startups
March 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Onward Eugene is excited to present a workshop by one of our leading local experts in the essential topic of organizational storytelling.
The story of your startup is constantly being told. Are you the author of that story?
Organizational Storytelling is too often perceived as a soft skill or an elective strategy. It is neither. Stories establish your culture, provide clarity and both express and evoke confidence. Storytelling is an essential skill for businesses at any stage, but even more so for the Startup.
JOIN US for Organizational Storytelling for Startups, a workshop with storytelling expert Robert Killen. Discover the secrets of power stories, identity curation, authenticity, and more. Learn how to firmly establish your business culture, how to communicate with crystal clarity, and how to foster the greatest possible confidence in your brand new business.
