Team Coaching for Storytelling
August 28 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Join two accomplished storytellers – Jim Brulé and Maja Bumberák – in this special one-time event. A limited number of participants will have the opportunity to experience a unique model of coaching – team coaching.
We will dive deeply into the ways that oral storytelling affects us as storytellers, and how to be even more effective at oral storytelling.
