-- bringing out your voice in business --
Do you feel like your message is getting lost?
Being in business means constantly juggling between the day-to-day demands on your time,
and somehow finding time to raise your head up to keep an eye on the bigger picture.
Managing a team.. Building a brand... Effectively and convincingly getting your message out there..
It can all feel really overwhelming.
And in the midst of it all, you can lose touch with why you started your business in the first place.
Presenting and pitching
Growing a team
Attracting (the right) clients
Finding any time to review and work towards having more cohesive, authentic vision for your business can feel impossible..
..but it doesn't have to be!
I use storytelling (and some creative fun) to increase your confidence and your clarity in sharing your vision
both inside and outside your business.
Storytelling is the most powerful tool we have in communicating with others.
To share stories is a fundamental human trait that transcends borders and cultures.
Our brains are literally wired to cling to narrative.
This 'stickiness' is what makes storytelling so vital and so powerful - because stories build bridges for us to empathise, to relate, and most importantly to genuinely connect with those around us.
How storytelling works
Here's me talking about what makes storytelling so powerful at Real Big Things in 2016.
(I had really cool pink hair back then)
I help teams step into their stories to build meaningful, shared internal values, and to create a strong foundation for cohesive external identity for their businesses.
Confidence + Clarity = Strong Communication
