Hello 2021! Here are the top posts from the first quarter:


In-Person events are back… Sort of

We had our first live Corporate Storytelling Workshop since COVID restrictions hit last year. Sort of. It was a hybrid event with some people there in person and some attending virtually. It was good but not as great as all-live or all-virtual events. Still, there were three big takeaways:

  1. There is an appetite for live events – it’s just a great experience with tons of peer interaction and stickier skill development.

  2. While the hybrid approach may not be optimal, it’s a solid alternative for organizations that can’t get all their people in the room.

  3. I really missed interacting directly with a group.

Here are five posts on observations and lessons learned on leading a hybrid event:
