  • Tools that you can share with your team, board members and volunteers to make them better brand ambassadors.
  • Techniques for telling a great story, and a way to find your organization’s most compelling stories.
  • An understanding of how to read your audience and how to connect with them to share the purpose and needs of your organization.
  • Simple and effective exercises for you to be a great presenter, from the page to the stage.

Instructor: Alice Fairfax is the Senior Vice President of Ideation & Experience Design at MQDC, a destination development company, headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand. She holds a certificate in Creativity & Innovation from the Walt Disney Company and Harvard Business School Publishing and a B.A. in Liberal Arts from Rollins College. From her home base in Winter Garden, Florida she meets remotely with teams across the globe and travels to Thailand regularly. An award-winning actor and writer, Fairfax was an improvisational entertainer at Walt Disney World for over 20 years where she performed comedy on the streets of Epcot, told holiday stories around the world, coached singers at The American Idol Experience, and was “friends” with one iconic character (hint: she owns a magic wand and turns pumpkins into vehicles). She leads Tell Your Story workshops and coaching sessions, especially to help nonprofits and small businesses win the day with their stories.
