In Search of Adventure

“Find Tell Share” is a podcast co-hosted in Sheffield by Chris Sissons, Market Together and Jemma Rosenthal, Creative Hearts.  It’s the storyteller’s podcast, featuring everything storytelling, especially if you use stories to promote your business or charity (and you should!).  We produce an edition once a month with a guest, watch out for it.

This month we have women who cycle, the perils of abundance and an heroic tooth.

March’s Guest – Ruth McIntosh, Good Apples Copy

Whilst some people dream of fast cars and a luxury lifestyle Ruth’s dream is to free-wheel around ancient towns in the south of France soaking in the atmosphere. She tells us that riding her bike makes her feels like a kid again and she’s a great advocate of travelling slowly, taking in the view.

When she’s not cycling or dreaming about it she’s an online English tutor, content writer  and brand-storyteller who lives in South Sheffield just on the border in to Derbyshire. Her business is called Good Apple Copy and so she calls herself the Good Apple – and after 20 years of working as a teacher she now works one-to-one with individuals to build their confidence.  In addition to website and magazine content, she also works on Life Writing projects for people wanting to self-publish their memoirs and her own books on slow cycling.

Chris Sissons has always loved stories and these days strides the streets of Sheffield always on the lookout for a new story.  He was a Community Development Worker for 30 years and consequently is sceptical about almost everything. 

I’m a marketing coach, using stories to open up business development in surprising ways.  I underline the distinction between real and paid work.  Many people are unhappy because they cannot find time for their real work – as we unravel the lockdown, we’re all challenged to step up and offer the world our own unique insights.  They won’t always work but how else do we find the ones that do?

I run Telling Stories: Making Business, storytelling for business owners, on second and fourth Thursdays (usually).  It’s an opportunity to hear a business owner’s story and to offer feedback.  We improve our own storytelling when we help others.  Find the TSMB programme here.  This page is regularly updated.  Click on links in right hand column to register for your Zoom link.
