Storyteller’s Circle – Sept 2023 – Measuring Impact!
Welcome to the Storyteller’s Circle, co-sponsored by CCC & Intermountain West Joint Venture!
This month’s session discussion is focused on Measuring Impact:
How can you tell that your communications are making a difference in the work that you do? Communications work is often “squishy” in that the results of storytelling done right are hard to define and quantify. How do we try to measure the intangibles of human emotion and action to show that our words make a difference?
Join us Thursday, September 28th, from 12:30-2 MT
As conservation communicators, we are faced with a daunting task: telling compelling stories to encourage actions that will “save the world”. But how often do we make space for developing our craft in order to do these stories justice?
Enter the Storyteller’s Circle! This (free!) bi-monthly, virtual event combines topic-based discussions led by other communications professionals with dedicated time to work on your own storytelling projects in a supportive environment.
Join us September 28th, 2023 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. MT for a discussion on how we are measuring impact in our communications!
This workshop series is produced to support the Western Collaborative Conservation Network.
How does the Storyteller’s Circle work?
Sessions will last for 90 minutes and will be “drop-in”-style; i.e., join whenever and stay for however long you want. A designated facilitator will commit to keeping the Zoom room open for the full 90-minute session. Don’t feel like you need to commit to coming every other month, either. Show up as your availability and interest dictates.
Sessions will be broken into 45-minute halves. The first half will feature a speaker, presentation, or facilitated discussion that allows participants to work collaboratively through storytelling challenges. The second half will be a “write-in” where you’ll have space to work on your storytelling projects in a quiet group space. During this time, we ask that you mute yourself and use the chat feature to ask questions, bring a problem to the group’s attention, or hold side conversations.
There will be a hard stop for this workshop at the 90-minute mark. If you want to carry on a topic-specific discussion or side conversation beyond the session, we encourage you to arrange a time outside the workshop to do so.
