May 21, 2019 11:00 am–March 21, 2019 12:30 pm
Creating simple, memorable ways to speak and write consistently about your organization’s work can be transformational. Clearly defined and consistently implemented mission statements and messaging platforms are key to ensuring that all points of contact with your organization reinforce the right messages. In this workshop, Farra Trompeter, Vice President of Big Duck and Rabbi Isaac Saposnik, Executive Director of Havaya Summer Programs, will review how these messaging elements can be created to more effectively engage your audiences. They’ll also discuss the relationship between brand strategy (positioning and personality) and messaging, providing examples of how other organizations define and use these tools.
Participants in this session will:
- Learn to evaluate and evolve their mission statement
- Gain the tools to draft or update their key messages, boilerplate, and elevator pitch
- Discover the value of having simple, memorable ways to speak and write consistently about their organization
