IWD: Foundations of Thought Leadership: Reframing Your Narrative
Wednesday, March 11
6:00 – 8:00pm
This International Women’s Day, we’re inviting our community to share their superpowers – those special qualities that make you shine. Whether you’re creating space for more voices to be heard or you’re working to secure funding as an entrepreneur, you’re a superhero in our book. Together let’s celebrate the super-women in our lives. Together let’s create a new narrative for our industry.
In this highly-interactive and energetic 2-hr workshop, we explore the source of credibility and how to establish it. We cover strategies for making a greater impact through your writing (and speaking) and the value of framing your message and yourself as part of a larger public conversation. Participants leave this session with a newly crafted professional bio.
Presentation Materials supplied by Write/Speak/Code.
