Before we meet: Please review this material to prepare: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1QRvIDq_7ew7DcGp_ap86z_z1-1Y7JssP?usp=sharing This content will provide the foundation you need to get the most out of this workshop. Stories are more memorable than data – you are 12x more likely to remember a story than statistics. When you bring your value proposition to life with stories, your listeners will remember the value you bring, and why. This makes it easier for your network to retell those stories, amplify your value proposition, and help you scale your board search. It also increases the chances you’ll be recommended for opportunities when your story and related value proposition are remembered and retold.  In this workshop, facilitated by Athena Alliance executive coach Tissa Richards, we’ll practice illustrating your value proposition with stories. You’ll get immediate feedback from other Athena members. Did your story make your value proposition clear and memorable? Can they easily tell your story back to you? This is how you know your story can be repeated and scaled across your network.
