Our passion for human story is rooted in empathy and curiosity. Story is more than a great book or or a tale we share with one another. Story is within us. It is the common thread connecting our human experience. When we look to relate and confide in one another we look to share in story. Stories shape us, inspire us, and evoke the human emotional state that binds us.

This session will focus on the elements of a good video story, and why it is so important for nonprofit organizations to tell authentic stories to raise awareness and funding. Panelists will discuss what they need to create an authentic storytelling video, what to look for when you are hiring a professional videographer to help you tell your agency story, and tips for finding the best stories within your organization.
