Storytelling for Maximum Influence, Tuesday October 11th in downtown Oakland

Join the Berkeley-Haas Alumni Network’s East Bay Chapter in a networking and interactive learning session with fellow Haas alum, Daniel Kimble, MBA ’10.  Daniel is an Executive Coach and Thought Leader with special interests in acting and screenwriting. The interactive session will focus on why audiences are most inspired by stories. Daniel will also provide exercises in how to construct and deliver your own compelling stories.

Information is worth very little unless it’s boiled down to a few key insights and presented in a way that inspires people to take new and different action to drive stronger business results. Too often there is a big gap between a business leader’s intuitive insights and the information that is presented. The ability to truly influence stakeholders requires compelling, personalized stories that clearly illustrate these insights to generate the enthusiasm and agreement to pursue new initiatives and new business opportunities.

Storytelling skill is part art and part craft.  Many believe you either have it or you don’t. In actuality it is a very learnable skill. This skill is most crucial for leaders where business insights and opportunities are huge, and it is paramount to convey this information in a way that inspires other business colleagues. This session will help you master this learnable skill. You will come away with an understanding that it’s not the information you provide, but the stories you tell that most drives your success.

This event is graciously hosted by Wendel, Rosen, Black & Dean LLP.
