If you would like to tell your story, please text Chris Sissons on the mobile number at the top of the page. I'm seeking storytellers from 22 April 2021! Normally second and fourth Thursdays at 2pm. Meetings take place on Zoom.
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
Very Constructive Feedback
It was interesting. I felt very at ease. It was nice and formal and I found it very constructive. I got feedback about the way I could tell the story about my brand and it was very good.
Powerful and Helpful Feedback
This testimonial is from a post on Facebook, Steve published on the day of his storytelling:
Story Telling in Business.
Do you have a business story in your sales toolbox? You might have heard that my book is being launched very soon "Funnel Vision - Selling Made Easy". Because of this I thought it important to develop my skills in telling my story as I launch and pitch my book.
Today I joined Christopher John Sissons at Telling Stories: Making Business - here's the FaceBook Page👇🏼 https://www.facebook.com/tellingstoriesmakingbusiness/
I found it incredibly valuable and was surprised at the emotions I felt. I've presented in front of hundreds of people whilst at Shell and as The Sales Mindset Coach but this was my story and people were giving me feedback on it. The feedback was not only on my story telling prowess but my actual story! Getting feedback in both these areas was powerful and helpful.
If you've not got a business story can I suggest you create one and practice telling it as without one I think you're missing out.
Improve How You Get Your Business Across
I really enjoyed it. I told my story and I must admit I didn’t prepare it before because I never do. I had great feedback about how I can alter it, how I can improve on it. And what I can bring across to connect more people to want to come to me and my business. Chris is a really good mentor in this and so I recommend anyone who would like to come across and would like to improve how they get their business across to come to this Telling Stories.
