    Central Library, Information Commons Lab

    Say, what's your story? Do your customers know who you are, why you do what you do, and what makes you different, better or more interesting than your competitors? They should! Your story is the foundation on which you build your brand. A strong brand elevates your business above the competitive fray and into the minds and hearts of consumers. Large corporation, small business or solo-preneur: your brand matters. But how do you build a brand that is compelling and engaging? Alan Siege will explore the power of stories and their ability to transform ideas, attitudes, and even beliefs; describe how companies are use stories to recruit, retain, and train staff and employees; tell you why YOU should invest in your own story; give you ways, as a manager and leader, to use story-telling right away; and demonstrate how stories can work for your business. The Business & Career Library is co-sponsoring this event.
