Storytelling is a powerful form of communication. Stories are more impactful than facts. They get attention. They get remembered. They change perceptions. They change attitudes. People (and businesses) are making a serious effort to try and incorporate stories into their daily lives.

For this live talk show and networking event, we welcome best-selling and award-winning international author, Jessica Jarlvi.

You will learn:
-How to create and structure a message that is worth communicating
-How to cultivate a storytelling voice
-How to grab someone’s attention
-How to make a story come “alive”

Jessica Jarlvi’s story is powerful. After winning the Montegrappa Prize in 2016 at the prestigious Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, Jessica published her psychological thriller books, ‘When I Wake Up’ and ‘What Did I Do?’ Fast forward a few short years, and Jessica went from being an aspiring author to an internationally acclaimed author and thought-leader who travels between UAE, UK, and USA, delivering keynotes and workshops. Although Jessica’s writing tends to be somewhat dark, Jessica is driven to inspire people that “anything is possible” – anyone can lead a happy, successful life.

If you wish to buy a signed copy of Jessica’s books, you can do so for only 50aed cash on the day.

Join us for an engaging fireside chat and learn how to use actionable storytelling techniques. Build new friendships with driven and professional women of Dubai.

Can’t wait to see you all there!
