  • Human Beings Think in Story

    think-in-story-web.jpg

    Time: 06:00pm to 08:00pm

    4101 Las Posas Road
    Camarillo, CA 93010

    What:
    Human Beings Think in Story

    About:
    In business or in life, those who tell the best story have the greatest chance for success! Business transactions are not just exchanges of material goods and services – they are exchanges of NARRATIVES. In business, we participate in a series of exchanges and what we are exchanging before we get down to business are our stories.

    Before we consider, negotiate or buy, we accept some story about a product or service. In every transaction, knowing what those stories are, how to construct them, and where they belong are critical to your success. In this workshop by Influence Ecology Co-Founder Kirkland Tibbels, participants will learn what these stories are, where they belong in transactions, and how to apply them right away. 

    When:
    Tuesday, August 15, 2018

    Time:
    from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

    Where:
