Strategic Storytelling

Workshop Overview

Stories are the fabric of our lives. They create an emotional connection and provide meaning to ordinary events. As a fifth-generation, family-owned business, Biltmore uses stories to share our history and remember those who contributed to our company’s founding. By weaving memories into our corporate culture, we create a powerful touchstone for our leadership team, employees, and customers. 

Discover how and why you should incorporate storytelling into your organization as a competitive advantage, no matter the industry. Explore how to use results-oriented storytelling to achieve your outcome, whether that be to drive a change initiative, thrive after a challenging time, build brand loyalty, or other achieve another organizational goal. You’ll learn how to communicate your stories effectively and how to foster emotional engagement that excites your employees and customers and creates fierce loyalty. Best of all, you’ll leave with a solid plan that helps you move forward and make storytelling a part of your success story.
