SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) May 14, 2018
It’s been said that those who tell the stories rule the world. That’s why the Center for Corporate Storytelling at California International Business University (CIBU), in partnership with speaker and business coach Ann marie Houghtailing, is offering a first-of-its-kind academic certification in Corporate Storytelling.
“Storytelling is, quite literally, the most underutilized powerful tool of influence,” said Houghtailing, who works with companies and individuals to integrate storytelling into their business development. “Whether you’re trying to lead people, use it in marketing, or pitch and generate revenue, storytelling as an extraordinarily powerful too.”
The inaugural program takes place June 8 – 9, 2018 at the CIBU campus in downtown San Diego. The cost of the program is $1,195. The Corporate Storytelling program provides a foundational education in the science, structure, and application of storytelling for business, and will teach participants how to thoughtfully and authentically integrate memorable and impactful narrative into their day-to-day business practice. The certification is well suited for marketers, professional service providers, entrepreneurs, attorneys, business leaders, speakers, start-ups, and non-profits that seek to elevate their exposure and influence in the marketplace.
“I’ve had the privilege of coaching attorneys with opening and closing arguments using storytelling. I’ve worked with non-profits to explain global warming using storytelling, and I’ve worked with forensic accountants to use it. There is really no industry that cannot benefit from the power of story,” said Houghtailing.
The program will be delivered in a two-day, 16-hour intensive format to accommodate the demanding schedules of the working professionals that CIBU serves. More information can be found at: annmariehoughtailing.com.
