Boardroom Series 2020 | The Board’s Role in Storytelling (Webinar)

Begins 09/10/2020
Available capacity: 27

The third installment in the Boardroom 2020 series is The Board’s Role in Storytelling. This year, the Boardroom webinars bring in concepts from a variety of books, as we connect the books’ ideas to the business of library boards.

The Board’s Role in Storytelling suggests ways that trustees can relay more meaningful impact stories about how essential the library truly is in the community. Having some basic numbers at hand is a good start, having a ready elevator speech is a good next step. But telling stories about the difference that the public library makes in people’s lives leads to the most memorable conversations with friends, funders, and advocates.

The September program is based on the book Stories That Stick: How Stories Can Captivate Customers, Influence Audiences, and Transform Your Business (c2019) by Kindra Hall. From Amazon: “…Telling stories well is a simple, accessible skill that anyone can develop. Hall presents storytelling as the underutilized talent that separates the good from the best in business. She offers specific, actionable steps that readers can take to find, craft, and leverage the stories they already have and simply aren’t telling…”

There is no obligation to read the book prior to the program. Attendance: at this webinar helps satisfy standard #8 "...all members of the library board of trustees participate in a variety of board development training each year..."
