    About "Tell Your Story, Build Your Business"

    We all know how important it is to use stories in our speeches. But have you fully exploited the power of storytelling on behalf of yourself and your business?

    After all, you are more than your list of credentials, clients and topics. The right story will help you connect with prospects, deepen relationships and position yourself for even greater success.

    In this engaging, interactive session we’ll use a couple of different story models to help you craft a narrative that captures who you are and the value you bring in a way that’s truly compelling.

    You'll have a chance to whip up first drafts of your stories, share them with others and get valuable feedback.

    Presented by Rob Biesenbach
