About the training


CSRDG conducted Business proposal/presentation training (Storytelling workshop) in Tbilisi for social enterprises participating in the third B2B exhibition.

Up to 20 social entrepreneurs from different regions attended the training. 


Purpose of the training


The purpose of the training is to assist social enterprises to tell the story of their essence and goals in an interesting way, to effectively develop messages and deliver them to the audience with the effective communication. After the trainings, social entrepreneurs will be able to prepare tailored and needs-based business offers for the B2B exhibition.

During the interactive sessions, the participants worked on the strong and clear story to tell. They captured the key aspects of the social enterprise, a clear explanation of what they do and why they do it. Also, they were able to understand the needs of their business audience, why they should be interested in them and how to tell the story that excites them.
