Fundraisers, communicators and executives always push staff (often program staff) to gather and use stories that engage, motivate and move audiences to take action. Too often those asking for more stories do little if anything to assist staff in the mechanics of organizational storytelling, including: how to recognize stories that will work for one or many purposes; how to gather those stories (narrative, photo, video and other supporting materials); how to use stories for maximum impact and how to organize and house those stories so that they are available to any and all staff who would find them useful. Attendees should come prepared with at least one story they could offer up to the presenter and attendees as the epitome of the greatest success story; the not-quite-there-yet story or the story that bombed. We'll use examples of stories from the nonprofit sector to hone our skills and leave with success stories for our organizations.
