Our community orchestra contributes to the quality of life in Summerville, SC. Telling our story well communicates this fact to potential financial sponsors.
-- Betty Settle, SCO Founder
After an introductory workshop on the benefits of applied storytelling for non-profit groups, Tim interviewed the founder of the Summerville Community Orchestra to glean stories that reflected the community spirit of the group and its major contribution to the social fabric of the town. He then coached the founder on how to craft a story incorporating personal detail and humor to make her "sales pitch" more appealing to potential donors and corporate sponsors.
