Storytelling Basics for Business
 
Is the story you tell potential new clients about what your company does, deceptively simple?  Or is it very complex?
 
Either way, how do you tell a new client what you do in a way that sticks and makes your company stand out from your competitors?  And how do you get across how you are the company to solve their problem because you have done it before in a way that is compelling?
 
Master Storytelling Coach, Bridget K. Brown of StoryMatters, LLC, will take you through a workshop that uses your product, and the achievements of your company to tell the story of what you do and how what you do solves the problem of new customers.  At the end of the hour you will be able to tell your story in a compelling manner that sticks, so that when you are face to face within a business development session, you can apply your storytelling prowess to get the new customer to say “yes”!
 
Please bring 2 examples of successes with past clients, what you did how that solved a problem for them. (Company names not necessary).
