SIO’s Lessons Learned

SIO’s Intra-NSN Story Share Initiative

Welcome to SIO’s “Lessons Learned” Intra NSN Story Share Initiative.

This blog concept was conceived during COVID-19, as a way of connecting our NSN storytelling community in an active knowledge management exchange, as we share and discuss how we have learned to:

  • Used video conference technology in new and creative ways to build audience engagement
  • Developed new networking relationships
  • Created new performance and presentation opportunities
  • Challenged our creativity
  • Established opportunities for connection and support

We are looking forward to hearing from our fellow NSN colleagues so we can all learn from your experiences.  Share a blog post or include a YouTube video link.

Please forward your submissions and contact information to SIO Board Member, Bill Brantley at
.  We will be posting on an ongoing basis.

Thank you.
