Hear Mark Redmond, executive director of Spectrum Youth and Family Services and an experienced MOTH Storyteller, in this upbeat, inspiring keynote about how to use story to bring your organization's profile to new heights.  

Since Mark Redmond began his nonprofit career 35 years ago, he has utilized storytelling as an indispensible tool in motivating donors and supporters to give. As executive director of Spectrum Youth and Family Services in Burlington, donated dollars to the organization have increased 30-fold during his 14-year tenure (due to his rock-star development team, he says!). Bringing the riveting, heartbreaking stories of Spectrum youth to donors and the larger community has much to do with this success. Hear Mark, an experienced MOTH, Extempo & RISK storyteller, in this upbeat, inspiring talk about how to use story to bring your organization’s profile to new heights.

Once a year, VT Story Lab invites nonprofits and individuals passionate about storytelling to come together to share their ideas, questions and “home-run” projects, as well as to build skills. This year the summit takes place at Shelburne Farms’ Coach Barn.  See the more programming from the summit here.
