Learn how to use storytelling in business to increase the impact of your communications and your ability to persuade, influence and inspire others.
Our Business Storytelling training teaches leaders, managers, executives and anyone who must regularly engage and motivate others just how storytelling in business works and why it works, so they can put it to work to improve the effectiveness of their communications.

Most importantly, business storytelling participants will walk out of the workshop with one “killer” leadership story, which they will have refined and practiced telling in front of each other, and which will serve as a model for them to develop other stories to build up their “library.”
“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood, and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.”
In the broadest sense, our Business Storytelling training is designed to help organizational and corporate leaders understand how storytelling in business works so they can put it to work to improve the impact and uptake of their communications.
