Storytelling Workshop (Northwestern Kellogg)

Monday, 11 Dec, 2017 18:30 - 21:00
Google, Mapletree Business City

The Northwestern University and Kellogg Alumni Club of Singapore wishes to invite you to a storytelling workshop hosted by Esther Choy, Class of 2009, at the Google office. People forget facts, but they never forget a good story. It sounds so simple: Incorporate a story and people will remember your message. But when you get down to crafting one, there's nothing easy about it. Material for stories surrounds us. Yet few people are skilled at sharing personal anecdotes and even fewer know how to link them to professional goals. Esther’s debut book, "Let the Story Do the Work," shows you how to mine your experience for simple narratives that convey who you are, what you want to achieve, and why others should care.

Cost: Cost: $35 includes your copy of the book as well as food and drinks
