    When your board members are comfortable telling stories, good things happen.  :)   But how do you get your board members to joyfully tell stories in the community?

    Let Christopher Davenport walk your board members through the steps of crafting a powerful story.  This DVD is the companion to Christopher's best selling “Nonprofit Storytelling for Board Members” book.

    You could easily watch the videos during a board meeting or at a board retreat.  The DVD is 35 minutes in length and broken up into bite sized pieces. There's also a companion book board members could use to follow along with.

    Board members will learn:

    1. three types of stories they need to tell
    2. the four building blocks of a powerful story
    3. seven story triggers to keep their listener captivated by the story
    4. three phrases to engage anybody
    5. how to structure a story for maximum effectiveness
    6. how to find great stories
    7. what types of details to include in their stories
    8. There is also a section with questions to help your board members easily craft their own stories

    Would you like to tell stories that motivate people to take action?

    Then grab a copy of this DVD and join the thousands of other folks who are learning to tell more compelling stories. I'd also suggest picking up copies of the companion book to hand out to all your board members. Unlike most other books that are big and take a while to read, this book is small enough to fit in your back pocket. It’s small and fun to read. So start telling better stories that will help you and your board members engage and motivate people in your community to support your organization.

    1 DVD, Length 35 minutes. (optional book, size: 3.5" x 5", 32 pages)
