    Advanced Storytelling – with Coaching Time

    Key Audience: Executive Director, Development Director & other Development staff, PR
    & Communication staff, board members – especially board chair & marketing and
    fundraising chair

    We’re told we must share a story in our communication. The truth is storytelling has
    gotten a bit lazy. We put a picture on a page, share a few facts about the person in the
    picture and hope people give a bunch of money.

    As a master storyteller, Lori knows exactly how to utilize storytelling as a powerful tool
    for fundraising & donor stewardship. In this session you’ll learn how & why to share
    mission moment stories to inspire giving. You’ll learn how to craft & share your
    organizational money story. Get ready make changes in your fundraising
    communication that will have unimaginable effects.

    Attendees will:
    – Learn how to effectively share a mission moment story.
    – Learn what your “money” story is and how to share it so you raise more money.
    – Bring your pre-written mission moment story & money story to receive coaching
    & fine tune your message for appeals, social media & other communications.

    Cost: Free to attend.
