Lisa’s work with corporations, international news and non-profit organizations has given her powerful professional experience – including shooting, producing, and editing news, marketing and promotional videos, PSA’s and documentaries.

Join us Tuesdays in June at Noon PST:

June 1: Why Stories Matter
Stories are the foundation for the way we live our lives and how we make sense of the world. Stories have the power to teach, to inspire, to connect us, and to build community. In this first webinar, Lisa will introduce us to the history of stories and storytelling. She’ll challenge us to start thinking differently about our lives and why our stories matter.  

June 8: What Makes a Compelling Story? 
Have you ever prepared a report about an issue that’s important to you and your industry, hoping to get others to join your cause, only to find that they just didn’t get it or don’t see the importance of it? Lisa will teach us how to make our stories capture attention and ignite action. She’ll help us understand what makes someone a compelling storyteller, challenging us to think about who we can find in our communities or industries to help us tell our stories.

June 15: How to Share Your Story
In the first two sessions, we’ll learn about the decisions needed to make a compelling story, and in this third session she’ll walk us through the practical application to create and share our stories. 

June 22: Case Studies
In this final session, Lisa will pick apart some storytelling, helping us understand what could have done better and how the story could have been more powerful.
