Detroit Design Network: April Design & Dine Luncheon @ Grand Innovation
Apr 18 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Join the Detroit Design Network at our Design & Dine series. This month’s workshop features Matt Dibble, founder of marketing company Final5, who will share tips on how to create a narrative to drive interest about your work.

All great work starts with how we talk about it, and the impact that it has. In this one hour conversation, you’ll be focusing on how creative leaders can begin to understand and share their stories of impact to engage and attract the right people – so you can do make more money and do better work.

About Matt Dibble

A Flint native with roots in documentary film making, Matt discovered and honed his craft for storytelling around metro Detroit with a camera on his back and an editing suite in his bedroom. 15 years later, he’s helping companies connect with clients and prospects through authentic stories that already exist within their organization.

He is the founder of Final5, a storytelling company that supports and guides you as you articulate and amplify your purpose and values. He’s an alum of Leadership Detroit and his focus on working with world class organizations is balanced by his passion for his community through work with non profits and residents alike.

Your RSVP will secure your seat at this interactive workshop, and includes lunch. This event is free for Detroit Design Network members.

Hosted by the Detroit Design Network, Design and Dine is a lunch lecture series where Detroit Design Network members share their industry expertise with an audience. Each lecture, program, or workshop aims to connect designers, share knowledge, and help attendees build a wide range of design-based skillsets.
