2022 BN360: The Art of Story Telling
Friday, September 30, 2022 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EDT)
The Art of Storytelling
Presented by: Herb Escher and Carlisle Lipke, Dale Carnegie of WNY
This workshop provides the basic structure to build credibility, capture attention, and call others to action.
Successful leaders and public speakers throughout history have understood and harnessed the power of good storytelling. No matter your topic or your audience, telling a story engages your listeners and elevates your public speaking to an art.
Dale Carnegie believed that public speaking and storytelling are skills to be learned, not inborn abilities. Impactful storytelling requires an understanding of your audience, your topic, and your goal. In this workshop, you will learn the very same skills that Dale Carnegie himself used to create generations of successful business people, compelling community leaders, and even politicians.
At the completion of this workshop, you will be able to:
• Define your audience and their needs, goals, and wants
• Plan an opening, message delivery, and closing that have impact
• Use the secret to storytelling: The Magic Formula
Date: Friday, September 30
Time: Noon - 1 PM
Tickets: Free Event for BN360 Members
$25 individual event
*Event recordings for all BN360 / BNP events will now be exclusively available on the Member Portal. Please contact our Member Services Team for assistance - firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cultural humility. The term may be unfamiliar, but it is a critical component to any organization’s diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
Event organizers have been left questioning whether their events should go back to being in-person, remain virtual or become something in between. How do you make that decision, especially when there is still so much uncertainty? All events are unique, but the most important thing to do is to consider your audience and be prepared to pivot if you need to. Here are a few tips to help get you started.
The Buffalo Niagara Partnership knows that hiring is the most common pain point amongst all employers right now, and will be for the foreseeable future. We created the Employ Buffalo Niagara Career Pathways Program to help regional companies attract and retain talent in this challenging job market.
