Storytelling for Success
Everyone has a favorite story. In fact, we all love to listen to a good story. Ginny Pulos of Ginny Pulos Communications believes everyone has a story to tell. Women in Leadership invited Ginny to travel from her home base in New York City to deliver a workshop called Storytelling for Success. The self-proclaimed "Chief Storytelling Officer" delivered on her promise: "Learn the keys that will dynamically help you sound the trumpet about who you are and what you've accomplished in the proper tone to specific audiences at precisely the right moment to help you achieve your goals."
"Who you are is not only enough â€“ itâ€™s exceptionally powerful," said Ginny Pulos. When you interview for jobs,"Tell them a good story," she added. Ginny believes the ability to tell a good story at the proper time gives job seekers a big advantage.
Four members of the executive board of Women In Leadership worked hard in advance and received coaching from Ginny. Danielle Hart started by telling about the "Little Engine" that "Didn't." Then, Cassia Martens shared how she overcame her fear of public speaking. Sam Greenberg told the audience her dream career. D'arcy Devine shared a story of overcoming the loss of her father at a young age. By the end of the three-hour workshop everyone had a story to tell.

A grant from the Womenâ€™s Fund at the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore funded the workshop. Many members of the Womenâ€™s Fund also attended the workshop. Hearing the stories of women, young and not so young, inspired great communication. After the event, ladies gathered for food and networking. Stories flew around the table of fun and engaged women of all ages.
