Storytelling helps us find an audience who care about our purpose. They help us communicate who we are and our business values. Facts and figures go only so far, stories are remembered and demand a response from those who hear or read them.

Testimonials from Past Storytellers
Put Audiences at the Centre of my Story
The best thing I've learned today is how to put audiences at the centre of my story, so that they can relate and identify themselves with my story.
I found the feedback very helpful and it helped me to put a structure to my story.
Talking to Clients in a Different Way
I had a great time. It was really good. I came along to find out more about how I could use telling stories in business and in marketing. I’ve had a really good evening at this workshop. It’s very different to any businessy-type workshops I’ve been to before. It was really good to think about talking to clients in a different way and using stories from my business and from life to connect with people.
Excellent Feedback to Help Me Enormously as a Speaker
I recently attended the storytelling event run by Chris Sissons as a speaker sharing my story. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I have to say that Chris is one of the most nicest and genuine people you will ever meet. He helped me so much when it came to formatting my story so that I can present it to people in the best way possible. He gave me some excellent feedback which is going to help me enormously as a speaker and I am so grateful to him for this. He also very kindly gave me a coaching session where he helped me to come up with an amazing idea in how I can promote myself as a speaker and coach and I am so very grateful for this as It will help me to connect with so many people who are looking for positive changes in their lives. I would absolutely recommend that anyone wanting to share there story attend this event. Chris Sissons is very good at what he does and I feel very grateful that I was given the opportunity to share my story at this amazing event. Thank you
