Johnathon Vaughn Strebly | Creative Pulse Talk + Social at BrainStation

Wednesday, Apr 27, 6:00pm
BrainStation, 1110 Hamilton St #410
Vancouver, BC

It doesn’t matter how talented you are, or how hard you work—if you don’t know how to effectively talk about what you do, you’re going to get ignored.

Imagine this: you meet your dream client. They tell you they’re expecting an important call and you could have less than 90 seconds to make an impression.

How do you share your story?

Nurturing the Narrative: You, Your Work, Your Clients

On Apr 27th Johnathon Vaughn Strebly will show you a framework for speaking about your work so that people give a damn.

Johnathon’s approach is simple, flexible, and delivers results. You can customize it to:

  • Inspire collaborators
  • Kick ass in job interviews
  • Impress your dream client in a portfolio presentation

Join us at BrainStation for a tasty beverage and leave with a formula for talking about your work honestly and effectively.
