VOLT Workshop

The VOLT Academy is pleased to present a special leadership workshop for volunteers attending the ASME Annual Meeting in Long Beach, California.

Storytelling to Motivate and Inspire
Telling an authentic and personal story can be one of the best forms of persuasion. Stories can open people’s minds and help them to see from a different perspective. As we strive to ensure ASME is an organization that values difference and welcomes all, we need to be able to tell the stories that will show the way and inspire others to join us.

Learning Objectives
As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Hone your unique perspective
  • Craft a persuasive message
  • Inspire and motivate your audience

Date & Time: Monday, June 3, 2:00-4:00pm.
