How to Tell Stories that Inspire Your Supporters (and Help to Raise More Money!)

March 23 @ 8:45 am - 1:00 pm

23rd March | 8:45 am – 1:00 pm – Whatever discipline of fundraiser you are, storytelling is your most powerful communication tool. Stories connect us emotionally.  We remember more information communicated through story. It’s no wonder it’s so effective, storytelling is in our DNA; our ancestors communicated and learned through the stories that they passed down from generation to generation. Having sold out our previous events, we’re repeating this workshop to cater for demand for this important topic.

We are natural born storytellers yet sometimes in our professional fundraising environment we forget the importance of our innate skill of storytelling. Stories connect us to the importance of the causes we fundraise for, they connect and inspire our supporters to give. In a competitive environment where we are bombarded by thousands of messages every waking minute of every day our ability to tell stories that make us stand out, connect us to others and make us memorable might be the difference between fundraising success and failure.

This workshop is for any fundraiser that wants to;

– Raise more money using this important influencing skill
– Inspire their colleagues, board members, volunteers and supporters
– Reconnect with the important cause that they fundraise for

At the end of this workshop you will have;

– Learned how and where to find your own stories
– Practised telling stories to different audiences
– Confidence to tell your stories with passion and conviction
– Engaged and inspired others through your storytelling
– Enjoyed yourself
