Better Story, Better Business by Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux

Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture on our minds. Want to make a point or raise an issue? Tell a story. — Janet Litherland

January Networking Luncheon

Better Story, Better Business by Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux

A Cook County Chamber of Commerce & Cook County Higher Education Event

• Connect with your customers.
• Refine your brand.
• Gain a loyal following.
• Make it easy for others to promote you.
• ...All by telling your story.

Storytelling and business might seem worlds apart; one conjures up kids at a campfire, the other banks and boardrooms. But business is built on communication, and storytelling is communication at its most effective, memorable and shareable.

If you want to forge long term business relationships (with clients or employees) that pay off in repeat sales, social media shares, and well-received innovations, you need to know your business's best stories, and how to tell them well. (It's fun-- and it's easier than you think).

Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux has been a professional storyteller since 2001. She has taught workshops nationally and performed internationally.

Come learn, come share best practices, and network with other businesses and nonprofits in Cook County!
