Breakthrough School Storytelling: Crafting Content That Makes Dream Families Take Action

What makes a school story effective? How do you create and share content that you know your audiences will love? In this presentation, Emily Cretella -- school storyteller and owner of Cursive Content -- breaks down what it means to tell a powerful story, and gives you the strategies and tools you need to craft your own strong school story foundation.

Emily Cretella is a strategic storyteller, content marketer and school marketer’s best business friend. The owner of Cursive Content, Emily helps school marketers tell powerful stories that attract dream families, increase inquiries and enrollment, strengthen communities, and grow school influence.
