This month's COVID Cafe, will meet Thursday, May 21st at 8 am. We will start at 8 am.  So pour a good cup of coffee and settle in at your desk or kitchen table for a good time connecting with new and old friends discussing interesting topics.

Persuasive Story Telling


Story telling is an effective way of sharing ideas and experiences.

  • How often do you use story telling in your business?
  • What are the benefits of story telling vs. just providing facts?
  • What things can an effective story create for stakeholders?
  • What rules should you follow when using persuasive story telling?
We learn best from our peers.  Coffee Connections is all about getting to know your peers by offering lessons learned and best practices.
