Good Stories: a day of marketing and communications workshops for social enterprises

Tickets now available for Good Stories, 26 February in London

It’s all too easy to put off spending time and money on communicating what you're doing and why. Often it feels like a nice-to-have, when all your energy is focused on more urgent business needs.

But done well, communication can be core to your business strategy. Powerful stories can help attract new customers, open up new partnerships, boost employee engagement, and add to your brand value.

Storytelling is a craft, though. Just because humans are hard-wired to respond to great stories, doesn’t mean it’s easy to create them, or get them heard.

Good Stories, hosted in partnership with NatWest, is a one-day event to arm you with practical tools and tips, targeted specifically at social enterprises. It will give you some time and space to think more strategically about what you’re saying and how you’re saying it. And it’ll be a chance to hear from and share ideas with your fellow entrepreneurs and communicators.

Who’s it for?

Good Stories is aimed both at those running or working for social enterprises and mission-driven businesses, and those at social enterprise support organisations. Whether you’re a sole entrepreneur, the person landed with tweeting and website updates, or in a full-time communications role, the event is for you.
