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 order lunch at The Rude Shipyard. Food available includes meat, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. You can order from approx £4.50 - £7.50.
Details of meetings are below. Please sign up on Eventbrite so that we can offer The Rude Shipyard an idea of numbers.

100 ways to tell stories
I highly recommend attending these sessions as I learned a lot from the feedback and how I can improve the technique of telling my story. I may know my own stories so well but it is an art form of how we can tell it in a fun and engaging way to our target audience who will hear it for the first time.
I Highly Recommend It
I found it really interesting. It was great to get the feedback on my story and obviously look at different ways in which I can amend it and make it better. So yes I found it really useful and there were some really good comments come back from the group, so I would highly recommend it.
