Story/Speaker Coaching

“All of the presenters really appreciated and benefited from your coaching.  Presentations all went very well. World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and his team were very impressed.” ~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 presenation 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, Facebook Video chat or simply via phone.

In 30 to 60 minutes we begin the process of transforming your Story or presentation into something completely worth sharing. One session or multiple, it’s up to you.

Coaching usually combines Story prompts and email exchange of specific writing assignments with verbal coaching via Skype or Facebook video chat or phone.

Let’s get started.
Send an email  Let’s compare calendars to schedule.
Tell me what you are seeking assistance with:

  1. Identify Audience/Who you are telling to. Key Message/Take Away . Goal in telling: Convey/Convince/Change Behavior.
  2. Transform an idea or seed into a Story to share.
  3. Effective Story-frames.
  4. Mining Data for Story.
  5. Story Crafting.
  6. Written feedback on your current or revised content.
  7. Verbal Delivery Techniques and Coaching.

    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.
