Build Your Brand at the National Storytelling Conference!

Designed by Karen Chace
Every year the National Storytelling Conference brings together storytellers, educators, librarians and business entrepreneurs to network and learn from each other. There are pre-conference workshops in the healing arts, for those working with youth, producers and organizers, and Master Classes with some of the best and brightest, and that’s all before the main conference begins! This year, the conference will take place in Arizona and there is still time to register! Check out all of the amazing offerings at the link: .

I am delighted to be co-presenting a business workshop with Simon Brooks. Here is a brief description:

Branding, It Doesn’t Have to Hurt!  "Steer" the audience to you. It doesn't hurt to be branded; in fact, it might hurt your business if you’re not. Branding will help your image, professionalism and visibility. Build strength and trust with potential clients; define your personal and business persona. Discover how to subtly create awareness and recognition with your client base and become memorable! Laptops encouraged but not necessary.

For a taste of some of the topics we will cover, head over to our blog piece for the National Storytelling Network at the following link: .

We hope you can find time in your busy conference schedule to join us and brand your business! Friday afternoon, July 25 at 1:45. We promise, it won’t hurt a bit! Look for the star logo at the top of this blog on our workshop room door at the conference. We will be waiting with lots of information to get you started...and chocolates!
