Session 2: MAKE TIME FOR STORY–HOW TO MOVE PLAN TO REALITY: Learn how to use storytelling + organizational skills to elevate and celebrate your mission. In this workshop, you will create a storytelling campaign from beginning to end. Building on the skills you learned in the morning session, or on your own already-existing skills, you will develop a plan for a public-facing campaign that helps you share your nonprofit’s mission and inspire others. From creating internal collateral materials to understanding your external tactics, this workshop is your number-one stop for comingling storytelling with organizational realties and deadlines.
