Grand Potential Podcast


Join us for a valuable master class with GC member Deb Alcadinho of Business 4 Social Good, and Julie Ann of Influence Publishing, to find your story of purposeful passion, and share it with the world.

Stories are important to connect us to our audience who make buying decisions every day, with businesses and brands that resonate with their values and ideals. In this powerful workshop, Deb will help us clarify our stories to share in our business and also at the Grand Giving Conference in December.

Julie Ann will share how to amplify our stories to a broader audience and get impact using publicity and collaborative strategies.

Three takeaways you will receive:

1. How to define your ‘why’, and connect your passionate cause to your business (even if you don’t know what that is yet)

2. The 6 key elements of your story framework

3. Strategies to amplify your story through collaboration
