Storytelling is the key to your organization success. If you are involved in any organization and group on campus, this is a program for you! Learn how to crack the storyteller’s code and tell better stories to build your brand from Geoffrey Melada, an award-winning journalist, trial lawyer and graduate of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

” I had the privilege of listening to Geoffrey speak at the Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh last March. He was eager to engage in conversation and share some important tricks of the storytelling trade that are applicable in any organizational, educational, or personal setting. I appreciated Geoffrey’s presentation style, attention to detail, and willingness to answer any and all questions students in attendance had. Thanks to his talk, every participant had a better understanding of the importance of storytelling in both fundraising and “friendraising.”
