How to use storytelling to drive change: 1-Day Workshop

There’s never been so much competition for your audience’s attention— so how do you make sure your message gets through? It’s not enough to just get noticed. To make a real impact, you have to make your audience care enough to take action. Whether you want them to make a purchase, support your cause, get involved or change their minds, creating a story they care about is the only way to inspire action and drive change.

In this full-day, interactive workshop, you’ll learn a step-by-step storytelling framework you can apply to any communication, regardless of your audience. By the end of the workshop, you will know how to craft a compelling story that reaches your audience and changes minds, attitudes and behaviors.

Event: Strategies for e-reputation management, 25 April 2019 Geneva

April 25, 2019, 18:30 – 19:30 followed by a networking apéro

Webster University Geneva

Digital threats such as cyber-attacks, data breaches and phishing have become increasingly common targeting both individuals and corporations. These attacks pose a serious threat to online reputation, not the least due to the close link between the e-reputation of organisations and the online reputation of their employees. Together with fake news, the threat of cyber-attacks, data breaches and scams also furthers consumer distrust in online communications.

In this troubled digital climate, how can communicators leverage the opportunities provided by the Internet, whilst mitigating against potential threats?

Stephane Koch, expert in internet security and digital strategies will explain some of the main digital threats. He will then provide advice on proactive measures that communicators can take to mitigate against the related risks to their company or organisation’s e-reputation – as well as how to manage communications if a crisis should occur.

Focusing on the opportunities, Viola Krebs will explore the potential of online communication, both to respond to communication crises resulting from cyber-attacks and to build consumer or public trust in an environment marked by growing distrust.
