8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
BEST Building, KU Edwards Campus, Overland Park
Storytelling is an essential part of leadership. In this session, you will learn to use storytelling as a powerful strategic communications tool to inform, engage, motivate and inspire those key audiences that are critical to your success. Effective leaders communicate to inspire talent to excel; to partner with investors and communities; to engage with customers and clients and to grow their impact in the world as part of a global community. Cultivating an authentic, passionate, and compelling narrative is vital to a leader's success.
You'll learn to:
- Deliver speeches using your own authentic communication style.
- Utilize the power of storytelling to deliver inspiring presentations.
- Augment your leadership communication capacity as you grow your organization.
- Learn acting techniques to present yourself in an effective manner and avoid body language, visual aids, nerves, etc., that commonly undercut the message unintentionally.
