Story Magic

Story Magic - A workshop to develop your brand story

Hosted by Kelly Sinclair of KS Communications


Cochrane Alliance Church
902 Glenbow Drive
Cochrane, Alberta
T4C 1J2


9 a.m. - 4 p.m


Want to know the ONE thing that will make your marketing better? 


It’s a strong brand story. So simple, yet so powerful. And I know you have a great one in you!


I can help you figure it out. 


Here’s where you might be stuck right now:

  • Not knowing what to say on social media, or really anywhere, so you just don’t say anything
  • Not thinking you have a story that’s important or impressive
  • Not feeling certain about who your ideal client really is
  • Not getting the traction you want with your marketing


When you know what to say, and who to say it to, marketing is EASY. And, when marketing is easy, you get your message out there and get to make the impact you are made to have with your business. 


If you’re passionate about your business and how it serves people, I’d love to see you at the Story Magic Workshop. 


It’s a full-day, in-person workshop where we will:

  • Work through my magic brand formula: brand story = who you are + who you’re for + why it matters
  • Uncover your brand values and how they show up in your business
  • Identify and really understand who your ideal client is (so you know who you’re looking for)
  • Craft your brand story in a way that you can’t wait to start sharing it everywhere! 


Seats are limited, which means there will be opportunities for personalized feedback throughout the session. 


BONUS: In addition to the workshop, you will be granted immediate access into a private Facebook group with Kelly so you can make new business connections, ask questions and get feedback.


Cost: $249 plus GST
