Nonprofit Storytelling Workshop
Wednesday, April 11th
Workshop Facilitator: Laura Packer 
In today's economic climate nonprofit organization must work even harder to be noticed by funders, potential stakeholders and even potential clients. Your staff may be feeling the strain of doing more with less.
Having a well-crafted and authentic story will help you persuade granting organizations that you are the right nonprofit in your field for them to fund, help your stakeholders and potential stakeholders communicate your mission more effectively and make your outreach to potential clients that much more powerful. What's more, when your staff knows your story and believes in it, they will be more passionate about their work in the face of adversity.
This highly participatory workshop will help you identify your organization's key story elements, craft those elements into several narratives appropriate for different audiences and conquer the challenges of telling your story. 
Laura Packer is a storyteller and communications consultant. She has worked with a wide variety of nonprofits, from health care to education to technology and beyond, helping them overcome various communications challenges and understand the impact of the stories they tell. She believes that storytelling is the best way to move people to action and that everyone can tell a good story. For more information please go to
