You and your colleagues are invited to a unique, immersive, and enjoyable one-day Leadership Experience exploring Storytelling skills through the magic of a Broadway Theater Experience - featuring "Come From Away"!
Join Elliott Masie (Learning Innovator & Producer) and Telly Leung (Actor & Producer) this Fall in New York City for a morning “deep dive” into Storytelling as we are joined by Broadway Actors, Directors, Stage Managers, and Musicians. Emily McGill (Communications Strategies) co-hosts our event.
You will have an orchestra seat for “Come From Away”, the award-winning Canadian musical set in the week following the September 11 attacks that tells the true story of what transpired when 38 planes were ordered to land unexpectedly in the small town of Gander, Canada. The characters in the musical are based on (and in most cases share the names of) real Gander residents as well as some of the 7,000 stranded travelers they housed and fed.
The musical has been received by audiences and critics as a cathartic storytelling of the capacity for human kindness in even the darkest of times and the triumph of humanity over hate.
Storytelling & Broadway Leadership Experience breaks all the traditions of a “corporate seminar”:
An amazing intersection between broadway and corporate. There's so much we in the corporate world can learn about how the different aspects of a theater production come together to tell an impactful story.

Learning how to tell your story authentically is an essential tool for every leader. Leave the elevator speech at the door and share yourself, your company, and your vision

The Storytelling and Broadway experience allowed me to relate a topic dear to my heart to my everyday work. I didn't realize I was underutilizing creativity until this event. Thank you.
