Slide from Changing Perception through Storytelling Presentation
Changing Perception through Storytelling

Jenny Bragiel, Volunteer Program Manager with the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System and Founder of Bragiel Global Consulting, speaks about creating positive perceptions of your organization by telling your organizational story. During her presentation, she challenges the audience’s understanding of perception and pushes attendees to think about their organizational messaging in a new way.

So often we talk about mistakes made in communications. We focus on the negative aspects and how to avoid them. This presentation focuses on the positives and how to build relationships and trust that will help you when something negative occurs. Bad things happen and mistakes happen, no matter how many policies you create or how much you train. Building a positive perception internally and externally can help give your organization the benefit of the doubt. It can help make it easier to get back to a positive place with your community, your local government officials, and your internal members.
