Learn the Power of Story with PDG Michael
This year's One Rotary Summit event features guest speaker and Past District Governor, Michael Caruso, who will help us develop powerful signature stories.  

Stories, as you know, are a fantastic way to grow your club, raise more money and get attention for Rotary.  Stories can make any presentation better, so if you or your spouse/partner do talks for work, you don't want to miss this valuable session.  
One Rotary Summit is Saturday, September 14 at Concordia University in Ann Arbor from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm and includes a picnic-style BBQ lunch.

The ability to tell a story is perhaps one life’s most useful skills.  Stories are certainly a great way to retain members and gain new Rotarians.

Smart leaders use stories to motivate team members and inspire high performance.  Savvy salespeople tell stories to encourage prospects to become customers.  Parents use stories to inspire good behavior from their children.

Yet, most people don’t really know how to tell a story.

The creation of a powerful narrative cannot be ad-libbed, but it can be shaped and sculpted, especially if you are familiar with the narrative essentials.

International author and speaker (and our D6380 Governor in 2016-17), Michael Angelo Caruso, will show us how to use the power of narrative in Rotary, at work and at home.  Watch a short video of Michael's storytelling style at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zHpgCtx5m0
