Storytelling for Social Enterprise

Having a killer social enterprise idea will only get you so far. Learn how to captivate others by telling a story that brings your message to life. Join storytelling experts Rachel Zahn and Betsy Jacobson from ForAffect for a fast-paced, tale-spinning experience. Participants will work together to apply the elements of a powerful story and take away the framework and tools to craft it.

About the Speakers:

Rachel Zahn

Through the experience of medical training and practice, Rachel became deeply interested in neurodevelopment and the formation of empathy in children and adults. She later redirected her career to impact children’s wellness and welfare in the Foster Care System. Over more than a decade of nonprofit leadership as both Executive Director and Board member, she’s guided organizations that make a difference. Rachel’s commitment to the power of message began when she successfully competed for fnding with over thirty nonprofit leaders in a “pitch” contest. ForAffect blends all of Rachel’s professional and life experience, and the toolbox she and Betsy have developed offers individuals and organizations greater power to create positive change.

Betsy Jacobson

For over 25 years, Betsy has been personally and professionally committed to organizational learning and improvement. She is a social scientist and the published author of several articles on Leadership, Personal Change, and Communications.
