In the working world, public speaking is a vital skill to have and to hone. Is one of your goals to become more comfortable and confident with public speaking? We can help! Join YNPN Boston and Massmouth for Tell Your Story! Storytelling for Public Speaking on Wednesday, June 28!
This event is our quarterly professional development event, focusing on developing skill and comfort with public speaking, using storytelling form. We will be partnering with Massmouth, a Boston-based nonprofit that promotes the art of storytelling. This training will include:
- Participating in interactive exercises on what makes for a good story;
- Discussing ways to use storytelling in the nonprofit world, whether through marketing, fundraising, or at an interview;
- Telling your story live in front of the group--we'll draw names at random to give 4-5 people this opportunity.
