  • How to create and share compelling conversations about your work and business online

    How to create and share compelling conversations about your work and business online

    We connect with each other through story-telling. It is the glue of our conversations, of our relationships. Brands and businesses have stories, back stories about their roots and origins, and the stories of the people who shape the brand and the people who use it. 

    We connect online through social engagement and that engagement is fed by story-telling whether through our status updates, our blogs, videos or pictures. A business today needs to understand its own story and how to tell it well in order to secure a relationship with its audience or customers. Do you think you are doing that? Do you think you know your own story and how to unpack it? Do you know the stories of your clients, customers, audiences? What content do you use to tell and share your story? 

    When: February 19, 2015 (2.00pm - 5.00pm)
