Posted by on July 09, 2012

The City of Philadelphia in coordination with the Free Library of Philadelphia and the many other Freedom Rings Partners invites you to attend a special professional development workshop with Andy Goodman, renowned storyteller and communications expert. Please see below for more information. We hope you can join us!

Change the Story: Change the World
A Professional Development workshop by Andy Goodman
Presented by Freedom Rings Partnership
When: Tuesday, July 10, 1:00-5:00 PM
Where: Chemical Heritage Foundation, 315 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106
Why: To laugh and to learn storytelling as a best practice
Fee: $75/person

Even if you have reams of evidence on your side, remember:
Numbers numb, jargon jars, and nobody ever marched on Washington because of a pie chart.
If you want to connect with your audience, tell them a story.

How can you reliably produce just the right story at the right time? As powerful tools for championing your cause, for conveying impact, for communicating substance, telling stories is good business, not just tall tales of laughably large fish. Good causes need to tell good stories. Andy has made a career by helping do-gooders do better, working with government, non-profits and foundations; he helps us find, sharpen and broadcast our stories. In this age of so much noise, cutting through the clutter and getting our messages heard is a craft and one that he cultivates with every workshop.

Please join us for this rare gem of a workshop led by one seriously good and funny Good Man.

This includes a full afternoon, hands-on workshop with a renowned story-teller and communications expert! Light refreshments and beverages included.
