Jehan Casinader’s session in late February with the chief executives was interesting and engaging so we decided to share this opportunity wider. Jehan will share how to maximise engagement with your intended audience by telling better stories. This interactive workshop is one not to miss! Register today as numbers are limited.

About this event

In a time of uncertainty, leaders need to cut through the noise and engage with staff and stakeholders in a meaningful way. But some of us don’t know how to tell great stories - or we're afraid to. As a result, our most important messages are never heard. 

As an award-winning journalist, Jehan Casinader tells compelling stories that engage Kiwis’ hearts and minds. In this interactive workshop, he’ll teach us to do the same.

Sharing practical tools and techniques, Jehan will focus on how people working in local government can use storytelling to build trust and lead change.
