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.
The group meets second and fourth Thursdays.
Time: 12.15 - 1.45pm
Place: The Rude Shipyard, 89 Abbeydale Road, Sheffield S7 1FE.
Contribution: £5 at the door. (We buy lunch for the Story-Teller and the rest covers my overheads.)

Great Time Telling My Story
I had a great time telling my story to Chris Sissons and the audience. It helped me to go on to give my story at a conference this last weekend on the 7th October in an arena of experts by experience and academic experts. My talk was well recieved and I was described at being able to tackle key issues in the criminal issues but whilst being able to talk from the heart. Thanks to everyone that heard me at this session I appreciate your feedback.
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
