Join us for an evening of fun, informal storytelling activities designed to help you articulate and practice sharing your origin story in a friendly and supportive environment.

Whether you are networking, interviewing, pitching, or just meeting new people, the most asked question is always “So what do you do?” A powerful origin story answers this question in a way that showcases not just who you are and what you do, but why you do it and what sets you apart.

When sharing origin stories, I like to reframe this question as "How do you spend your time," because it allows you to share a story about anything you're passionate about. Whether you are talking about your career, your backyard garden, or a baking side hustle, telling others about the journey to growing that passion tells a lot about who we are and helps us connect with others in more meaningful ways.

This workshop is a fun and informal sandbox for professional adults who want to practice sharing your story in a supportive community.
