Building and Strengthening Neighborhoods and People

Neighborhood Institute Workshop Preview: “It Starts with Story” by Peter Davis Branding

If you are looking to expand the reach and tighten the message of your organization, this workshop will be critical for expanding your branding toolkit. To attend this workshop, and others, register for the 2015 Neighborhood Institute here.

Baltimore is full of nonprofits and community members contributing greatly to improving our City. From arts to gardens to youth engagement and more, individuals and organizations are making Baltimore a better place to live. While these organizations have great programs, many struggle to explain their impact to potential partners and funders. You might have a fantastic project, but if you can’t share your idea eloquently and succinctly, it is difficult to make real impact.

Peter Davis Branding

Consultant Peter Davis has twelve years of experience in leading interactive workshops around brand building and how to create powerful pitches. He assisted leaders of startup, small to medium-sized B2B service companies, non-profit organizations, and institutions of higher learning to tell better stories about what they do, what they want, and why it matters. For the 2015 Neighborhood Institute, Peter will be reprising his extremely popular 2014 workshop, “Crash Course in Branding.” In this year’s presentation, Peter will emphasize the critical prerequisites to effective communication in a competitive and complex marketplace by providing strategies on structuring, elevating, and living your story to attract a natural audience.
