Update: How Ellevate is Keeping Our Community Safe and Connected during COVID-19

Please note - if this event is moved online, rescheduled, or cancelled, we will contact all attendees directly.

An equal world is an enabled world. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.

As we celebrate International Women's Day, join us at Addteq Headquarters at Forrestal Village on Thursday, March 12th for lunch and an interactive master class in business storytelling, "Tell Your Story, Advance Your Career."

In this interactive seminar, Heather Thomas, Princeton based-entrepreneur, storytelling coach and former storytelling instructor at Columbia University will teach the art of personal and professional storytelling.

She'll share the neuroscience that demonstrates why storytelling is a powerful but often underutilized communication tool. She'll also offer concrete examples that illustrate how storytelling can be used to influence business decisions, get a promotion, generate donations, land a new client, or generate enthusiasm for bold, new ideas.

You’ll leave this session with plenty of inspiration plus a story-building formula that you can use to craft powerful stories to use in your next important conversation or presentation to win over skeptics and move your agenda forward.

Ellevate is proud to partner with Addeteq on this event. Lunch is on us. Hope to see you there! Registration is required.
