Greg Hedgepeth, Communications Director, Institute for Emerging Issues
Jeff Polish, Executive Director, The Monti

“What do you do?” It’s a simple question, but not always easy to communicate in a way that resonates with your audience. And if people can’t remember who you are or why you do what you do, you may be overlooked when it comes to collaboration, funding, and other resources. As Jeff Polish often says, “In the end, it’s more important to make people care deeply about why you do what you do, rather than get lost in the details of what you doAnd that is what stories can communicate best—a relatable sense of motivation based on conflict or need.” This session will break down the key components of a great story and how to best market your impact so that others will take notice.

IEI’s Summer School Series will offer a number of online discussions, training, and workshops that will help communities work better together to identify challenges, problem-solve, and connect to resources. This four-part capacity building series will engage participants in virtual learning and sharing on the following topics: Civic Engagement, Storytelling, Adaptive Leadership, and Collective Impact.

(Please note: You do not have to register for all four parts of the series. Participants may register for our 4-part Summer School or individual sessions.)
