Storytelling Your Way
Passionate about creative writing? Join Carly Pavlinik, Manager of Business Transformation, and Carolyn Krug, Product Marketing Manager for Broadband Equipment, as they share how a powerful story encourages support and buy-in among colleagues and customers and how "boring" numbers can be compelling when told through a storyteller lens.
