From the very first human art created on cave walls, to a teenager's latest TikTok video, storytelling is a deeply human, and remarkably powerful, act. We remember stories. We respond to stories. We are connected via stories. For social impact organizations, stories help us share our impact, raise funds, and engage clients. Stories multiply our impact many times over and allow us to keep doing the important work that we do. Good stories can change minds, hearts, even lives. Social impact organization have to tell good stories.
But even most amazing stories lose their impact if they aren’t told well. And while an innately human act, telling a story well is not always easy to do. Stories that aren't told well fall flat and miss their mark. They don't lead to the change and outcomes that we want. Thankfully, storytelling can be learned and improved. Make It Memorable is a simple game that will help you and your team tell better stories. This collaborative game takes a group of 3-6 players from your organization through the process of developing a compelling story about your organization or project. It will help you tell stories that stick.
