Story Lab develops executive-level presence and communication skills through storytelling workshops and events. To be an effective leader — at work, in the community, or in your personal life — you must be able to communicate with impact. Often this means telling stories that are meaningful to you and others, and doing so in the rich language and expressive style of a seasoned storyteller. If you can craft and deliver an effective story, you will be better able to convey your value to recruiters, inspire and motivate classmates and colleagues, and influence your audience. At Story Lab, you’ll find an immersive experience and an opportunity to hone your skills in a safe and supportive environment.

This half-day retreat will be led by expert storytellers who will lead you through exercises to build your confidence and realize your unique communication style while celebrating extraordinary displays of leadership on stages large and small.

Who should participate in the retreat:
Students with a strong interest in building storytelling abilities and leadership development. Any level student at any school is welcome.
