But few of us have big budgets for Hollywood-style storytelling. That’s where Story Design comes in. Join award-winning filmmaker and leadership coach Denise Withers for a one-hour master class in how to create engaging stories without spending a dime. Discover the one thing you need to know connect with your toughest audience and walk away with a powerful story design framework that works for any topic.
