3. S.T.O.R.Y.- telling

With an Equipper from OM

We remember stories we’re told and they engage our emotions much more than facts alone. The S.T.O.R.Y. acronym will help you to train others in effective story-telling.

4. The Vision-Driven “Ask”

With Michiel Nap
How can we help our colleagues to learn to begin offering potential partners vision driven opportunities instead of asking to simply meet an immediate need? We will look at “the ask” for financial partnership within in a broader partnership.
