Lucidity Network and Not9to5 event
Storytelling is our most powerful communication tool, yet there is a knowing doing gap. Despite our innate storytelling skills, organisations are quick to revert back to the corporate slide deck, favouring facts and figures, and opportunities for powerful and impactful communications are lost.
Join us on Tuesday 10 September and get some top storytelling tips from Catherine Raynor, founding director at Mile 91, an agency that specialises in story gathering and management for charities and change makers. Learn how to make your organisation one that tells powerful stories including;
- Getting your HiPPOs on board (all will become clear)
- How to gather stories with integrity
- Building a culture of storytelling.
Hurry up though because spaces are limited.

IOF West Midlands Conference
Lucy is running Power session 4: How to network with confidence – because who you know is everything
Networks are where you find your next supporter, your next volunteer and your next sponsor. Who you know can also accelerate your career progression, help you get your next job and provide great learning and development opportunities. Good networks also keep you going when things get tough and help you celebrate your successes. Yet many of us dread ‘networking’. In this practical session, led by Lucy Gower, founder and director at Lucidity, learn tips to build and keep your networks and enjoy doing it
