La Suprema Lunch with Anna Darian
Time & Location
About the Event
Let’s be honest, networking can be brutal! Whether you’re standing around a happy hour or sitting down for a coffee meeting, knowing how to answer the question, “so, what’s your story?” can leave us all a bit tongue tied (or worse, rambling endlessly). This week, Anna Darian, Story Coach and Founder, will lead an interactive presentation to help you identify and craft your story in a way that showcases who you are and the “why” behind your business in a way that builds a genuine connection with your audience. Participants will walk away with an easy-to-use story structure they can start using today to make networking a breeze!
