Big Dream Story Circle – facilitated by John Bredin on July 11th at 7 pm

To follow up on the success of his June seminar at Symposia, “The Magical Power of Big Dream Stories,
” professor John Bredin will facilitate a dialogue to help the big dreamers among us to better craft, shape, and articulate their stories to the world. Whether you work in the world of the arts, business, or even politics, a growing body of psychological evidence points to the magic power of stories (or narrative) to help you communicate your ideas to a broader audience and to succeed in your mission. The good news, according to educator John Bredin who has helped thousands of students tell their stories better over the years is that you don’t always have to be born a great storyteller.

So, whether your big dream is to be an Oscar winning actor, a bestselling author, or a politician who brings about world peace, step one to nurturing your dream toward reality is to begin (right now!) telling better stories about your project to the world. Do you have something better to do on Monday night, July 11th?
Tuition fee is $25.
Please RSVP, since the circle will be capped at 10 people to allow maximum
“story time” for our big dreamers by email to John at
