I have spent my entire career creating communications for some of the world's best businesses and organizations: Apple, Bristol Myers Squibb, Cognizant, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Pepsi, Nortel, Starbucks, TDBank... you get it. I know a thing or two about communicating and I have the scars to prove it.
I have produced and spoken at hundreds of conferences over several decades. Very few are memorable. All the ones that are had someone tell a great story or stories.
I have worked with thousands of executives and their teams, and only a handful are great communicators. They can all tell transfixing stories.
I am going to change this, one story at a time.
Three reasons to be part of this community:
1) You realize that stories are a critical tool and are smart enough to know you could improve your storytelling skills
2) You realize that you can't improve your storytelling skills by watching a few videos. It takes work, it requires audiences, and it requires feedback and refinement.
3) You realize that most groups on social media are inundated with ads and rants. Not a good place to learn a new skill.
I am a musician. Learning storytelling is like learning to play an instrument. You learn some basics, you practice, you learn a song or two, you try them out with people, get feedback, and go back to work.
If you are smart, you also get lessons from someone better than you. You learn smarter, better and faster if you do.
Storytelling is the same. This is a place to do it.
You will find lots of free content, ideas, and tips here. It is yours for the taking and I am continually updating and adding to it.
You can get more by joining a Group to share and get feedback, and upgrading your membership to include events and courses.
I only ask one thing - participate. This is a community. Communities only work when their members are active and help each other. It has to be a two way street.
If you are willing to do that, I promise that this community will help make you a better communicator, a better sales person, and a better leader, coach and human being.
