Stories Set You Apart and Connect You to Your Audience

How You Tell Your Stories Matters

Have you ever heard a speaker share a story and have one of these reactions:

#1: Wow, I really feel connected to what this person is saying. I have a new perspective on my own situation.


#2: Why is this person telling this story? I don't get how this relates to the rest of their content or why I should care.

You don't want to end up being the speaker where the people in the audience are having the second reaction.

You want your stories to have purpose and meaning.

This is what you're going to learn and work on in our Storytelling for Speakers workshop live on Zoom.

Carol’s process of storytelling is compassionate and smart. With her guidance, I was able to take my story and turn it into a powerful idea worth spreading on the TEDx stage.

Chanta Wilkinson

I realized that my trainings were a bit too “sterile” and I was trying to get a lot of information across to the listeners.

As a result of working with Speaking Your Brand, I’ve learned how to include personal stories into my talks, which I now realize is VERY important.

— Chanta Wilkinson, DEI Consultant, Trainer, and Speaker


From learning and working with Carol and Diane, I've realized the power of sharing my own stories in my presentations.

They helped me to uncover the most important pieces and how to share them in a compelling way.
