Every company, every brand ambassador, and every employee should be able to articulate the many stories that shape the brand of your organization. Corporate stories can be compelling, dramatic, and heartfelt… but only if they are told skillfully and with purpose.

“Tracey is a valued consultant to my team at Molloy College. Our job is to engage with students, alumni and donors. With her passion for storytelling, Tracey taught us to be better versions of ourselves, and to engage more authentically through the medium of storytelling. Her storytelling workshop was invaluable in helping us find and tell our ‘Molloy Stories’ in compelling and effective ways.”

For generations, information was shared primarily through the tradition of storytelling. While we have more efficient tools these days, the art and intrigue of telling stories lives on.
Stories that capture hearts and imaginations play a role in every part of life — from the family dinner table, to the community event, to the workplace. And everyone has a story to tell. The secret is uncovering the story and learning to craft and share it in a memorable and moving way.
Storytelling has emerged as the single most powerful fundraising and donor engagement tool for nonprofits. Research shows that the purse strings are loosed primarily by the heartstrings. Similarly, foundations can showcase their good works through the power of individual stories.
For many nonprofits, the reasons to give can be complex, and storytelling provides a easy-to-understand “container” for the message. More than that, a compelling and memorable story can significantly impact the level of engagement and the amount of the donation.
Storytelling Workshops for Nonprofits are ideal for your frontline brand ambassadors, including staff, board members and key spokespeople. Tracey can also coach your team on their personal stories and produce a live show to feature your own storytellers.
