Jan 29th Event: The Art of Storytelling

melanie coulsonMelanie Coulson, United Way Ottawa’s Director, Communications and Content, has been telling stories since she was about two years old. She turned this passion for characters, setting and plot into a profession. Melanie (@mel_coulson) has more than 15 years experience as an award-winning senior-level journalist in the country’s top newsrooms. She has worked in digital media since 1999 – she was globeandmail.com‘s first hire as the news organization shaped what would become its online operation. She continues her love for delivering good stories about the lives changed by United Way Ottawa; and teaches digital journalism at Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication.

Join us on Thursday, January 29th as Melanie discusses how
understanding your audience will allow you to create compelling content that begs to be shared. She will delve into the United Way’s digital content strategy and how they use online media to engage donors and show how they are changing lives. As a former journalist, Melanie believes no stone should be left unturned – so come with your questions!
