What Father of the Bride teaches us about storytelling in the workplace

It’s a surprisingly simple story of a daughter’s upcoming wedding, told from a father’s perspective, yet it continues to capture hearts seven decades and three feature films later. When the new Cuban-infused version of family wedding pandemonium debuted this year, we couldn’t get down the aisle fast enough, collectively creating HBO Max’s biggest audience ever for a streaming-only film. Has that happened with your most recent communication efforts? Whether you’re a romcom fan of the flick or the “party pooper every party has,” you have to wonder: What is it about the Father of the Bride story that continues to captivate, and what can it teach us about organizational storytelling? In this session, we’ll explore the foundations that keep people coming back to this endearing narrative and how they can inspire your incredibly important work.

  • Discover the power of personal perspective to make it real
  • Tap into multiple workforce generations and evolving cultural norms, making room at the table for traditionalists and those ready for new experiences
  • Anticipate the chaos and know that someone will always push for the swans and flamingos
  • Learn to question and to accept that it doesn’t have to be perfect to be amazing
