Create Videos to Change the World

, Co-founder at ListenIn Pictures

Countless organizations are unequipped to tell great stories. Too often, they resort to bland descriptions of programs and requests for donations. But your audience is hungry for meaning, belonging and purpose. At the heart of every movement—including yours—there is a story that inspires people to stand up, take action, and join your cause. 

Annie Escobar, the co-founder of ListenIn Pictures, will lead an interactive workshop that shows you how to use video storytelling to create positive social impact. Whether you work for a social enterprise, a non-profit, a start-up, or a company that simply does good for this world, your organization has a portfolio of stories waiting to be unleashed. 

You will leave the workshop having crafted the portfolio of stories that will invite your audiences to be a part of something that matters. This will empower your audience to understand how they form an integral part of your story, not just a market of donors. This type of audience empowerment will drive fundraising, advocacy, engagement and ultimately, change.

Can't wait to meet you!
