Instead of taking the time to craft captivating stories, most entrepreneurs create dreary PowerPoint presentations filled with facts, jargon, buzzwords and graphs. Many entrepreneurs are so enthusiastic about what they're building that they assume their audience is just as interested. They start rattling off the facts without first making an effort to pull in their audience. No matter how compelling the facts are, if your audience isn't invested in what you're saying, all that data will be lost on them. The Story Edge workshop will give you a unique, competitive advantage by teaching you how to structure a story that is easily understood, believable and memorable.

Entre-SLAM: The Unexpected
Thursday, November 21

Entre-SLAM delivers a non-traditional experience for the creative, scrappy, bold entrepreneur. Based on the theme "The Unexpected," entrepreneurs will tell true stories to a community of their peers. Prizes are awarded to the top three storytellers. Winners are videotaped and posted online. This fun, informal evening also features food and entertainment from local entrepreneurs.
