January 14, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

Are you trying to get that coveted first job, plum promotion, or gain admission to your dream school? You may only get a minute or two to stand out from your competition. Telling your story in compelling, engaging and relevant ways is necessary to achieve your desired outcomes. Research shows that most people are fairly awful storytellers. The good news is that you can improve. Learn from the best modern storytellers – Shonda Rhimes, Pixar, Lucasfi lm, Magic Leap and more – how to engage and motivate gatekeepers to let you in. Crafting strategic personal narratives is your “story ticket” to success. Make it your business to master the art of standing out by telling your story today.
