Plus Latest "Find Tell Share" Podcast

Podcast: April 2021, "Find Tell Share: the Storytellers' Podcast, Episode 11.

Guest: Siobhan Moss, Connection Coach

If you would like to tell your story, please text Chris Sissons on 07887 352841.  I'm seeking storytellers from 10 June 2021! Normally second and fourth Thursdays at 2pm.  Meetings take place on Zoom.

Storytelling helps us find an audience who care about our purpose.  Stories help us communicate who we are and our business values.  Facts and figures go only so far, stories are remembered and invite a response from those who hear or read them.

Telling Stories: Making Business started as a lunch and learn.  Since the lockdown, we've met online at 2pm, but feel free to bring a sandwich! 

What happens?

We make brief introductions

Today's Story-Teller tells their story:

  • the group helps them understand their story, takes it apart and puts it back together again
  • we discuss how it can best be used to promote their business
  • we consider the media they use to tell the 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 sign up on Eventbrite to register for your Zoom link. Links to the Eventbrite page are in the right hand column in the Programme above.

Testimonials from Past Storytellers

I Can Still Improve My Story

I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting. I thoroughly enjoyed telling my story. I’ve learned that there are ways in which I can even improve what I do. I’ve spoken hundreds of times about my story but I’ve learned there are ways in which it can still be improved. I’m going to be putting those into practice next week.

Ah Ha Moments

Thank you Chris. Thanks so much for inviting me to tell my story today. It’s been insightful to get some amazing feedback from people, to find out what’s been working, what’s not working and also how I can make it better. So I definitely had some ah ha moments this afternoon, from telling it and getting feedback. And one particular thing has really made me think about how I tell it in the future. So, thank you for the opportunity to tell my story and for the amazing group of people to give feedback, including yourself.

A Greater Hook and Awareness

Yes, it was good. I came armed with my story of my life, which remarkably you might think is quite short but actually, it’s quite long. And I came armed with my story of my life and the influences that we get as we grow up and how we work with that. And I’ve been able to take hints and tips, take things back and it’s given me lots of ideas.

The feedback I’ve received as to how I can use my life story, which I don’t think’s that influential or that exciting to be honest, to give a greater hook and awareness to my prospective clients and to my current clients so that they know that, yeah, I do know what I’m talking about and my story is relevant into the industry and the business that I’m in.

Past Sessions

Please note:  There have been regular meetings of Telling Stories: Making Business for several years.  There is an archive of the first 70 or so meetings on my old website.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
