Workshop Hosted for Nonprofits

Clear Stories Raise Money (two-part Series) 
March 3 and March 17 – 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
Hosted by Ryan Holloway, MBA, Executive Director, 
Care Net Peninsula 

A crystal clear story engages followers and brings dollars to your mission. Unfortunately, many nonprofits struggle with clearly and concisely talking about their work. With so much noise out there right now, clunky marketing can cost money when you need it the most.

This two-part webinar series will give you a framework to tell a clear story for your mission. You will learn: 1) the secret framework storytellers have used for centuries to tell timeless stories that captivate their audience; 2) review good (and bad) examples of how other nonprofits tell stories with their marketing; and 3) apply the storyteller framework to your mission so you can tell crystal clear stories that raise money.
