You want to be the ‘go- to’ organization in your community for businesses. In order to do that, you need to be clear and concise with your messaging. The problem is you’re not a professional story teller, which can be frustrating when you realize you have so many stories to tell. 


You shouldn’t have to worry about your messaging when you have so many other important jobs to do. Let's fix this together. In this session, we will learn: 
1. What's holding your chamber back from telling a compelling story 
2. How to identify the villains and the heroes of your stories
3. How other chambers are addressing their ongoing messaging needs
