The current and post Covid-19 world means organizations, communities, and individuals have to reimagine their world from a 360-degree perspective. Never before has sharing your organization’s story been more critical. But what is that story today and what will it be tomorrow when everything is changing around us?  Framing Your Story For Meaningful Impact is a hands-on exercise in learning how to unpack, understand, and prepare to share and communicate moving forward. We will be addressing real barriers to identification and communication of your story ranging from brand, mission, and vision; to strategy, operations, and development. This workshop will demonstrate and allow you to practice a disciplined, patent-pending, and straightforward approach to more clearly defining your value and impact and then translate that into your organization immediately. From the value of your people and services to the impact of your mission and vision, you will learn a path to enhance marketing and fundraising efforts, satisfy and retain stakeholders and funders, and engage and empower employees. 

Join Al Emerick from ValueMapping™ who will be leading this extremely interactive workshop where you will tackle some “mountains of the moment” in a COVID-19 world! ValueMapping is like a GPS for your most powerful story, regardless of your expertise and experience as a communicator. A patent-pending, disciplined process, ValueMapping enables you to more deeply understand your organizations value expressed through impact. It then lowers barriers to communicating that value, so you can authentically connect with your stakeholders. Engaging, interactive, and energizing, ValueMapping will leave you with keen insights, powerful language, increased confidence, and a path to telling a story which every member of your organization can use. Each attendee will walk away having learned the process, crafted a pitch, developed a statement and created a foundation for developing future stories.

Whether you are seeking to improve your marketing and fundraising efforts, or engage and empower employees and board members, this session will give you tangible and immediately applicable tools and knowledge.
