StoryRight has empowered dozens of serving and ex-serving members since its first workshop was held in early 2018. The not-for-profit program provides training in communication and presentation skills to help veterans transition successfully to civilian life: helping them to communicate their military skills with clarity and self-confidence. Founded in Adelaide, StoryRight is now expanding nationally, with a workshop in Darwin and further workshops planned for Queensland and NSW
before the end of this year.
The webinar took place 7 PM AEST Thursday 29 August 2019
