What’s Your Story? The Meaning In What We Do.
What stories do you tell about emergency services? What stories make us laugh? What stories teach us? What stories bring us closer together? The history of every organization is, or should be, shared through stories. Some may be told to inspire, while others serve as a warning. Sharing some of his own stories Rom Duckworth asks us to think about the stories we share, the stories we’ve shaped, and the stories others will tell about us when we’ve gone.
