It’s not easy finding coaching, workshops, and resources that teach you great storytelling.



  • Wish you could knock your next presentation out of the park?
  • Wish you could speak about your business/work that makes people wanting more?
  • Wish you could easily impart your vision, engage people, and move them to action?
  • Wish you could raise money that keeps people sharing about your work long after the event is over?

These are just some of the ways business storytelling can make a big contribution to your leadership or organization.

You have influence -- and business gets done -- because your story captures the hearts and minds of others; not because of business speak, elevator speeches, charts, graphs or bulletpoints. 

Join Karen today (bestselling author, speaker, trainer, coach) to generate results more easily through the power of business storytelling.

Results like better leadership, engagement, influence, change, market share, and profits.

One of the originals in the business storytelling field, I bring the perfect trifecta of skills to the table (academic story + ethnography education, performance storytelling training, senior executive experience). My joy is turning you into a masterful influential storyteller who makes an impact and grows business. My motto says it all: “If you want results, just story it!”

How? Through coaching, workshops, and specialized story projects.

My clients have included Walt Disney Imagineering, NorthFace, Chase Manhattan Bank, Avery Dennison, Thrivent Financial, Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, Just In Time for Foster Youth, and Princess Cruises.

In 2013 I was recruited by John Wiley to write the bestselling book "Business Storytelling for Dummies" (2013) which I wrote with Lori Silverman. I've also contributed to 8 other works in the field.

If you want more free business storytelling resources, I've created the world's largest free library on the topic with 15,700+ followers at
