Empowering business people to achieve their goals through storytelling. And having a blast doing it all.
A world where people together achieve extraordinary positive results using the power of storytelling.
I didn't grow up a natural presenter or storyteller. I'm also an introvert. I came from a family of engineers. My dad was an engineer. My brother is a software engineer. My husband's a software engineer. Other family members are engineers. I'm surrounded by them! Engineers and introverts are not necessarily known for great communication skills. Academics trained me to be even more boring! Over the years, I've had to learn storytelling and influence the hard way.
But I did it. I've also perfected tools and shortcuts to make the storytelling journey a lot quicker and easier for you. Many are featured in my book Business Storytelling For Dummies, co-authored with Lori Silverman.
Over the years I've also been featured in numerous books on business storytelling like the Circle Of The 9 Muses: A Storytelling Field Guide for Innovators & Meaning Makers, David Hutchens; Working with Stories in Your Community Or Organization: Participatory Narrative Inquiry, Cynthia Kurtz: Vocal Leadership: 7 Minutes A Day To Communication Mastery, by Arthur S. Joseph, Wake Me Up When the Data is Over; How Organizations Use Stories to Drive Results by Lori Silverman, and The Leader’s Guide to Storytelling; Mastering the Art and Discipline of Business Narrative by Stephen Denning.
I'm also the world's #1 curator on business storytelling, having reviewed 2,300+ evergreen articles, with 17,500+ followers, 119,200+ visitors, and 56,900+ shares/comments. This is now the largest free library on business narratives for people like you to use.
Along the way I worked with clients like Cedars-Sinai, Citrix, Princess Cruises, Chase Bank, Avery Dennison, California Bank & Trust, Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, Beaver Medical Group, and others.
I'm focused on helping leaders in all industries use storytelling and next generation narrative methods. Data storytelling is a new in-demand service, as is leveraging the neuroscience of storytelling for greater influence and to build high performing cultures.
It's been an amazing ride, a ton of fun, and lots of incredible work.
