The second week, Park Howell will present “How to Clarify Your Story to Amplify Your Impact and Simplify Your Life.” Powell founded The Business of Story when, after more than 30 years’ experience in advertising, he  recognized profound changes in consumer dynamics being brought about by the Internet. Focusing on the power of story to connect with people, he will help attendees learn how to be heard using the power of brand and business storytelling. 

Kathleen Duffy Ybarra will present “How to Find the Right Talent to Build a Strong Team” for week 3. President of nationally respected recruiting firm Duffy Group, Inc., Ybarra is dedicated to helping individuals find joy in their work while she stays attuned to each client’s particular recruitment needs.

The series wraps up with Deborah Ostreicher speaking on “Distinguished Communications.” The CEO of Distinguished Communications and author of The Art of Effective Communication will share her strategy to help attendees learn to make an impact by following these three steps: enter with a bang, enlighten the audience, and exit like a pro.
