Chapter Meeting:

Story Telling Success!


Even the most technical presentations can benefit from the use of a well told story. This session teaches storytelling fundamentals and offers the opportunity to practice techniques live! You will leave with a story you can use in your presentations.

This session is a mix of lecture, small partner activities, and group discussions/examples.

From facilitating leadership seminars to speech competitions to delivering impactful keynotes, Paul has a rich and varied speaking portfolio. Based on his life experience, Paul's keynote "Hit!
