Why it Matters
A major part of your personal positioning is messaging, the language you use to communicate their Unique Value Proposition to target audiences. Mimi works with organisations and individuals to mine stories and formulate key messages which communicate your unique value proposition in the most impactful manner.
This workshop will unleash your potential to communicate with more impact about who you are, what you do, how you do it and why you do it. There may be similarities in your experience as a leader with other leaders in your circle. However, your personal offering and your story are yours.
Talking to Africa
Talking to Africa: Considering Culture in Communications for a Complex Continent argues that both domestic and international businesses, NGO’s and individuals interested in working in Africa can benefit from the multiplicity of experiences, backgrounds, attitudes and networks that define their target audiences.
This interactive workshop focuses on you as an individual leader and encourages you to delve into storytelling and to explore how your authentic personal narrative can be used to support and/or enhance your influence within and outside your organisation.
The workshop is facilitated by Mimi Kalinda, a seasoned communicator, author and entrepreneur with more than 20 years’ experience working with leaders in the policy, private and social impact sectors, to craft authentic and compelling personal narratives which drive organisational objectives forward.
