Telling the Molloy Story - 6 session Workshop

Telling the Molloy Story - 6 session Workshop

Stories are powerful. Stories are persuasive. Stories, well told, can move people and change how they act, and how they think and feel about themselves and the world. In the workshop outlined below, participants will fully engage with the instructor and each other to uncover one or two compelling story from their lives, and learn how to build those stories into powerful narratives that grab listeners’ attention and engagement. Participants will learn the basic building blocks of dynamic storytelling, the common themes that make audiences care and then use that knowledge to craft a persuasive and engaging “Molloy Story” that they can use in interactions with prospective students, donors, alumni and their internal teams.
