Creating Your Authentic Organizational Stories

Creating Your Authentic Organizational Stories

A 90 minute workshop - free to supporters of Northeast Storytelling's Sharing the Fire Conference. Others: contact http://www.nestorytelling.org for pricing.

What is an “authentic” story? A story or image that evokes the real value you provide to those you serve through your products or services.

Inauthentic marketing uses storytelling to create “sparkle,” to draw attention indiscriminately. But authentic stories are shaped to draw the attention of those yearning for what your organization offers.

This workshop will help you:

  1. Understand how stories can communicate experience from one human brain to another;
  2. Know where to look for the experiences that connect what your organization is passionate about offering with those who are hungry to receive it; and
  3. Try out some simple techniques for shaping those stories for maximum impact.

Location: Hotel 1620, Plymouth, MA

Coaching Mini-Workshop

Come get help with your most pressing storytelling problem—or with an individual story. You can choose a story that shows your best work, or one that you struggle with. You can choose an issue such as audience participation, or how to market your storytelling. As part of a group of three tellers, you’ll benefit not only from being coached, but also from watching the other two tellers make progress, too.

Length of Session: 90 minutes

Fee: $50/person (in addition to conference admission)

Format: Small Group, no audience permitted

Bio: Doug Lipman literally “wrote the book” on coaching storytellers (The Storytelling Coach, August House). He has coached hundreds of storytellers from Boston to Belgium, Kansas to Korea and Nebraska to New Zealand—including internationally known performers, NASA scientists, oil company executives, and ordinary folks with a story to tell.
