Why Are You in Business?
For many businesses it is more than making a living. It is ...
... having a purpose
... finding your personal path
Owning a business helps you find your place in the world.
The stories we tell help us find our audience, who care about our purpose. They help us communicate who we are and for the self-employed this is crucial.
Telling Stories: Making Business is a twice monthly lunch and learn.
We order lunch* and make brief introductions
Today's Story-Teller tells their story:
At the end we go round with 1 minute each to introduce our own business and say how this session has helped your business.
* Please note the Village Grill has a lunchtime menu of burgers, wraps and similar. There are vegetarian options and the food is mostly carbohydrate heavy!
The group meets second and fourth Thursdays.
Time: 12.15 - 1.45pm
Place: Village Grill, 344 Abbeydale Road. S7 1FP
Contribution: £10 at the door, includes lunch. (We buy lunch for the Story-Teller.)
Details of meetings are below. Please sign up on Eventbrite so that we can offer The Village Grill an idea of numbers.

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.
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
