We often find it difficult to talk about our accomplishments and the value we bring to our employers. Simply offering a list of our skills or tasks is not enough. Information is best absorbed through story, and this interactive workshop will show you why storytelling is a much more effective form of communication, the science of a great story, and how to use storytelling as a tool to showcase your accomplishments and value. This workshop is for individuals looking to change careers, seeking a new job, or looking to advance into a leadership position.
Workshop: Using Story to Showcase Your Value With Cynthia Rojas
Cynthia’s love of storytelling shines through in all she does. A life enthusiast, Cynthia tells personal stories that take an audience on a journey filled with laughter, wonder, and reflection. Her ability to transform everyday moments into captivating narrative makes her stories resonate with many.

Cynthia is the second-place winner of the Hartford Story Slam (November 2019) and the audience choice winner at the MassMouth Story Slam (January 2020). When she is not performing, Cynthia teaches storytelling as a leadership tool to new and promising leaders.
