Storytelling That Moves People

Wednesday, August 31st - 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Nashville Rescue Mission - 639 Lafayette Street

There is nothing more important than your story.  With over 3,000 nonprofits in the Nashville area, and limited/evolving corporate and private foundations, a nonprofit's story is their most valuable equity for the generation of new donors and the meaningful stewardship of current donors.

Learn about authentic storytelling, how to simplify your message and how to tell a story through video.  Carlos Maestas, Chief Storysmith, and Scott Meltzer, Social Profit Storysmith at Key Ideas will guide you in how to effectively and uniquely communicate your story.  Carlos and Scott provide useful information to use when sharing your story, along with a dash of comic relief.
