The Power of Your Solution Story-  Thaler Pekar

The big story about public health is one of great success and powerful achievements. We need to guide people toward discovering that narrative. Thaler will lead us in connecting with that big story and sharing the smaller stories of what we can – and are! – accomplishing right now. As a result, more people will see and understand their part in providing public health solutions.

Setting the Stage For Advocacy- Barbara Schneeman BA and Amanda Diehl MPH This session will review the results of the advocacy survey sent to the MPHA membership in early 2015. It will also provide an opportunity for attendees to actively engage in validating the survey if they did not have an opportunity to participate earlier. Further, this session sets the stage for the day with an overview of why advocacy is important by sharing case studies about public health policy changes as a result of successful advocacy.

Why Your Story Packs Power- Thaler Pekar

Story is our most powerful persuasive communication tool. Many public health leaders, however, are confused by what a story is, and are confounded by how and when to share stories.

 In this practical, interactive, and energetic program, you’ll learn why audiences engage with and respond to stories, and you will continue to explore how to find, develop, and share your stories to strengthen understanding of your work, deepen relationships, and retain and attract supporters.

 •            You will leave with at least one well-developed story, and with ideas about with whom and how to share your story.

•             You’ll acquire four easy tips for making your stories better.

•             You’ll be on your way to more fully developing your narrative intelligence – and your ability to harness the power of story to achieve your goals.
