Intentional Networking: Leveraging the Art of Storytelling

  • Park University 92 West Vaughn Avenue Gilbert, AZ, 85233 United States (map)

Let’s be honest, networking is hard!

Whether you’re standing around networking events, hummus and cheap wine in hand, working up the courage to awkwardly initiate a conversation, or sitting down for a coffee date, how do you answer the dreaded question…“so, what’s your story?”

Knowing what to say can be a challenge. Which story do we tell, is our story interesting, what’s too personal, not personal enough? When we’re not clear on our intentions, we run the risk of rambling and losing our audience in unnecessary details.

In this interactive workshop, Anna Darian, Storytelling Coach and Founder of Story Boss Nation, will teach you how to identify and craft the right story that showcases who you are and what you're working on today, whether you're making pivots or are a multi-passionate entrepreneur.


  • Gain clarity on your current networking goals and what you want to be known for

  • Learn basic story structure and how to leverage the power of your story

  • Craft a personal story to use in networking conversations, connect, and practice!
