Topic: The Most Important Career-Building Skill: Storytelling
Start Time: 07:30
End Time: 09:30
When the award-winning filmmakers of SagePresence started working with professionals to build their ability to present more effectively, they had no idea that they were putting their hands on some of the most important core skills that everybody needs to find their next opportunity, build their career, and be more effective inside of their jobs. But as their business progressed and their base clientele grew, they recognized that they were offering the same basic skills to widely varying needs, and they were consistently producing ground-breaking results. In this eclectic and fascinating presentation, Peter Machalek will share how building the skills related to storytelling can improve your ability to design a compelling future, to network, interview, sell, lead, and facilitate powerful and influential conversations.
