It’s always a good day when you can quote Homer Simpson …and even better when you can quote him in a book.
This week I sent the manuscript of my next book off to Wiley, my publisher. The book is about real communication and authentic leadership. Suffice to say, I couldn’t write a book about this without including a chapter on the power of sharing personal stories.
Stories are one of the most powerful ways to engage your audience because they:
It reminds me of when Lisa Simpson told Homer that bacon, ham and pork chops all came from the same animal. His response was incredulous.
“Yeah right Lisa. A wonderful, ‘magical’ animal”.

I put it to you that using a story in business is truly a wonderful, magical beast.
For 15 years, I have been teaching storytelling to business people. This was way before it became the newest ‘fad’. With 2018 coming to a close, I have scheduled my only public business storytelling workshops for 2019.
Melbourne – Friday 1st March
Manhattan, New York – 20th March
Early bird is available until the end of December which means a $100 saving if you register now.
We may schedule more workshops in other locations if there is enough interest. If you are really interested and don’t see your location, then let us know where you are and how many people you want to attend the training. We will see what we can do!
