Story/Speaker Coaching

“World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and his team were very impressed. All of the presenters really appreciated and benefited from your coaching.  Presentations all went very well.” ~Phil Karp, World Bank, Lead Knowledge Management Specialist

Do you have a Story to tell, but aren’t exactly sure how? Do you have ideas brewing but they are stuck in formulation stage? Or a presentation to deliver and though it’s coming together nicely it’s missing a little je ne sais quoi (that’s French for “something.” 😉 )

I can help.  Storytelling and Speaking Coaching Sessions available from wherever you are in your presentation creation or journey.

Flexible format: Face to face, via Skype, Zoom, or simply via phone.

How does it work?

1. Initial assessment call or email exchange to determine your needs: Is it polishing a current presentation or beginner brainstorming? Do you need story frames to apply to a talk or do you need help mining the story from your data? Our brief email exchange or a 20 minute phone call will tell us. Once we know your needs, we take it from there.

2. I will provide the necessary tips, tools and techniques to serve you to clearly and in a compelling manner to create your story or polish your presentation. You do a revised version, I edit and share detailed, specific feedback. Turn around time from when I receive your work: 24 hours.

3. Once you are satisfied with the story script, you have the option of verbal delivery coaching. 30 to 60 minutes sessions. Sessions available via Skype or Zoom or phone.

Fee: $250 for initial assessment, email revision exchange and 60 minutes verbal coaching session.

Deeper Dive Coaching combines specific storytelling prompts and email exchanges of specific writing assignments to prime the pump with verbal coaching of your story delivery via Skype or Facebook video chat or phone.

30 to 60 minutes initial assessment we begin the process of transforming your Story or presentation into something completely worth sharing. One session or multiple, it’s up to you. Individual session: $250 for initial assessment, 2 story prompts and 1 specific writing assignment to shape your story. Email for package pricing.

    I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the stories you told us from Iran. I loved the story about the bear with a prickle in his paw- and the story about the Iranian soldier. I am so glad they selected you to tell stories. I hope you have a great time in Nepal and that you continue to share stories and hold the space for others to share.
