Thanks everyone who attended this session at the 2015 PM Symposium.
We are wired to remember stories. This is why storytelling is a powerful technique for building relationships. It helps you connect with people you meet and keep them engaged. Whether you’re updating your resume, your LinkedIn profile, or a cover letter, you need to capture your audience’s attention in less than 17 seconds.
We only have 7 seconds to make a strong first impression when meeting someone new. A powerful personal story helps you create a meaningful, lasting first impression. That’s why it’s crucial to take the time up front to fully develop your own story to advance or pivot your career.
This session helps you understand how you can overcome the first impression barrier and clearly communicate to others where you are in your career, and where you want to go next. It identifies steps to help you create a captivating personal story to make a great first impression, expand your professional network, and connect with others who may need your abilities and expertise.
