8:00pm Wednesday, 27 September 2017
440 Collins St
Melbourne, Victoria 3000

There is more to telling stories than meets the eye…storytelling through different mediums can be a powerful means to influence, engage, inspire and track change.

This CMI Victoria Professional Development Event will be a two part interactive session: theory of storytelling with practical application for participants then onto visual components and further activity in small groups. Our speakers Mark Schenk from Anecdote International Pty Ltd and Peter Phan from FLIMP Studios will present the elements that make a good story and the variety of means in which you can portray a memorable yet targeted message. We will all get an opportunity to recount, create and maybe even tell a story or two.

Members or non-members, everyone is welcome, just make sure you register early as places are limited and bookings essential.

About our speakers

Mark Schenk

Mark is the Managing Director of Anecdote International Pty Ltd. He left the Air Force in 1998 after a 20-year career as a logistics officer. His foray into the consulting world took a surprising twist when he stumbled across the incredible natural power of stories. This led to a major change of career to focus on discovering how organisations and leaders can tap into this power.

Mark doesn’t consider himself a good storyteller…he just knows the power of using simple narrative patterns to achieve outstanding business results.

Anecdote was formed in 2004. The company is focussed on putting stories to work and helping restore humanity to the workplace. Being in such a niche market has provided many lessons in business, especially surviving two major market downturns and has required considerable experimentation with business models. Mark’s time is divided between growing Anecdote’s international Partner network which now includes over 50 Partners in 25 countries and delivering Anecdote’s workshops and consulting projects. He is passionate about using stories to help leaders be more engaging, inspiring and influential and in help organisations make their strategies stick.

Mark is a regular golfer, an aspiring underwater photographer and dreams of one day catching an iconic Murray Cod in Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin. Cod stocks in the lake have not yet been impacted by his efforts.  

Peter Phan

Peter is the Managing Director of FLIMP Studios and a cartoonist who specialises in working with change practitioners to develop vision posters and videos. By combining storytelling and visuals, Peter highlights the drivers, strategies and goals of a change project, and communicates them in a fun and engaging way.
