Telling your own company story is harder than you might think. But a powerful narrative might be the most important piece to have perfected as it influences everything from how you approach investors, to making important hiring decisions, to securing media coverage, and more. Join us for part one in a series of workshops; the “Building Your Narrative and Messaging Workshop” led by Glenn Eden, Executive Vice President, Corporate Affairs and Jeff Immel, Executive Creative Director at Weber Shandwick.

Attendees will walk away with:

  • A better articulation of what your company does and why it does it
  • Messaging constructs that can be tailored to various audiences
  • Ways to activate your narrative and begin telling your story

Breakfast will be served. All attendees will need to show proof of COVID 19 vaccination to enter 1871.
