HYPE Women: Dare to be Different

A surprising quality of inspirational leaders is that they capitalize on what’s unique about themselves. Entrepreneurial creatives Katie and Ted Ukrop embraced their uniqueness in 2005 when they opened Quirk, a stylized shop and art gallery in the heart of Jackson Ward. They are continuing to differentiate themselves in the community with the building of an arts-infused boutique hotel this fall. Katie and Ted recognize the importance of standing out among the crowd and are excited to share ways to identify your differences and communicate what’s unique about yourself to effectively stand out in the workplace.

Remember story time in kindergarten, and how your attention and imagination was captured? Fast forward 20 years where story time is replaced with PowerPoint presentations that deliver facts, figures and data. Even your six year old self knew the power of a good story. Don't miss your opportunity when delivering presentations to make connections with your audience through the power of good storytelling.
