Storytelling for Non-Profits: Harnessing the Power of Video and Print to Promote Your Stories
with Emmy award winning Cara Jones of Storytellers for Good
Recognizing that “people will forget what you tell them, but never forget how you make them feel,” Storytelling for Nonprofits will explore the unique power of stories, both video and in print, to move and inspire an audience. Emmy Award winning broadcast journalist and founder of Storytellers for Good, Cara Jones will:
- Detail general principles and best practices for storytelling
- Show how to demonstrate the power of your work to attract funders and volunteers.
- Provide media examples that work
- Offer interactive exercises
- Give practical tips you can use
All to help you become a more effective storyteller. You'll leave with greater knowledge on how to find and tell compelling stories that "feel"—stories that your audiences won't soon forget!
