Welcome to the 10th Young Entrepreneurs Corner to be held on 25th June 2015 at KICC, TIN TIN from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.
The theme for this month is “Story telling for small businesses”
Many times entrepreneurs at some point have to convince people that what they are doing is important and why they should join, buy from their company, invest or write about their company. So what does storytelling have to do with a business? Everything! If an entrepreneur can’t properly convey a story then his/her products or services are not going to appeal to the target audience.
Storytelling in business therefore is an effective force for allowing brands to spread in a meaningful and authentic way. Business storytelling is an ‘art’ and every business needs a great story to hook their audience. At this event, participants will learn;
• Importance of Storytelling in Business
• How to Use Storytelling in your Business
• Mistakes to avoid when using storytelling in business
