Boost your ability to engage and influence with stories that captivate, even if you're not a natural storyteller! 

You know the power stories hold. How engaging they are to listen to. How persuasive they can be. But you….

 

>> don’t feel confident telling them

 

>> don’t know enough to put them into action

 

>> struggle to make your stories interesting or relevant

 

>> don’t want to spend heaps of time to prepping in advance

 

Imagine instead that you’re able to tell a captivating story and use it to make a specific point, confidently and easily, whenever you need to!

 

That would be awesome right!? It would..

>>  Make you a more interesting and memorable presenter

 

>>  Improve your ability to influence behaviour change and decision making

A BIT ABOUT ME

 

Hi, I'm Emily Edgeley. A Toastmasters Competent Communicator and Toastmasters Advanced Storyteller who's been running Storytelling Workshops since 2016.

 

Storytelling literally changed my life. It transformed me from a bullet point speaking, boring presenter, to someone who uses stories regularly to entertain and persuade. It allowed me to travel to China and India and led me to the career I have now. 

 

To date, I’ve worked with more than a thousand people in tech like yourself and taught them the the art of storytelling. It’s the most popular thing I get asked to coach people on and the thing that gives me the biggest buzz to share. Because it’s such a super power!

This Program is going to be great for you if: 

 

 

>>  You’re not a natural or confident storyteller

 

·      >> You struggle to communicate ideas in a simple way

 

·      >> You have an interest in storytelling but want to take it a step further

 

·      >> You’re unsure how to apply stories to your work context

 

·      >> You want to be more engaging when you present

 

·      >> You want to improve your ability to influence people at work
