    Title of Presentation: Start Your Start-up or Side Project

    During this webinar, you’ll finally start that project!

The webinar will cover how to identify your target audience, gain valuable customer insights, prototype ideas, and iterate towards a successful product or project. You’ll walk away with a start, some useful tools, and clear next steps for how to continue.

    Have you ever tried to convey a new idea, launch a new product, or pitch a new business opportunity, and your efforts fell flat or didn't resonate with the audience? Positioning your ideas in a story often can be helpful and transformative to you personally and professionally. Storytelling is a technique to connect your message to your audience and make your points and ideas more memorable. Compelling stories are infused with emotions and motivate your audience to stay better engaged.

    This workshop, with expert Kenge Adams, will help you identify ways to shape your points into a story that resonates with others. You will take away key strategies to help get you started immediately!

    Event Outcomes:

    • Define What Makes a Story "a Story."
    • Learn tactics to become a better Storyteller.
    • Practice transforming a dull presentation into a compelling story that resonates with your audience.
