Description

Raise awareness & funds through storytelling - Kevin Anderson, The Story Edge

This special edition of TrACK will be delivered by Chief Storyteller and Founder of The Story Edge, Kevin Anderson.

Whether you're a charity or a social enterprise, you'll be creating stories each time you deliver your service. Each person you help is a story waiting to be told. Kevin is a trustee of a charity, and knows that finding time to tell and share these stories is easier said than done. In this Third Sector Storytelling workshop, you'll learn how to find, create and deliver compelling stories that make a difference to your organisation.

The goal of the workshop is to give you and your team the practical tools and confidence to be self-sufficient storytellers. The workshop includes:

  • The ingredients to a great third sector story
  • Finding your stories
  • Step by step story creation framework
  • Story delivery and presentation
  • Storytellers to learn from
  • Story Sharing - Putting your stories to work

Please join us on the 14th of September and get all this training for only £50. You will not get 3&1/2 hours of Kevin Anderson for £50 anywhere else. We work to keep costs down to help small to medium sized charities, community groups and social enterprises access the training they need to thrive.
