Everyone’s got a story, but knowing how to shape and tell that story effectively is a skill that separates the talkers from the real change-makers. This highly interactive session will encourage participants to pick a personal experience and develop it into an engaging, must-hear narrative that can help move equality forward.

In this session, participants will: 

  • Discuss how and why personal stories are so effective in creating transformative change;

  • Review the Story Arc Model and use PFLAG National’s storytelling workbook to identify, develop, and refine their personal stories;

  • Better understand the everchanging relationship they have with their stories and their audience over time; and

  • Fine-tune their storytelling and public speaking skills.
