Once upon a time, Social Media and Sustainability topped the list of business-world buzzwords, and then Storytelling came to town. Without a compelling story, we are told, our products, ideas, and personal brands, are dead on arrival—the end.

Entre-Slam contestants present five minute stories celebrating the trying-to-get-there, almost-there-and-missed, hanging-on-by-the-fingertips-but-hanging-on, and breakthrough moments of their business journeys. The first round of the competition crowned Vickie J. Lewis of VMX International, an environmentally focused consulting group out of Detroit, the winner. Nic Sims of Ann Arbor’s own Brillig Dry Bar will compete in this round and is excited to tell her story. The top two winners from each round go on to compete for cash prizes at the Michigan Theater on November 20.

The second round of Entre-Slam storytelling competition takes place from 7-9pm, Thursday, June 25 at Bar Louie, 401 E Liberty St #200, 734-794-3000. entreslam.com.
