Plus Latest "Find Tell Share" Podcast

Podcast: June 2021, "Find Tell Share: the Storytellers' Podcast, Episode 13.

Guest: John Chapman, Past Lives Ancestry

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.

Testimonials from Past Storytellers

John Chapman Past Lives Ancestry and Research

Constructive Feedback

Well, I find that interesting is a good word but I was telling a story and you get feedback and it was really constructive feedback I was getting from a variety of people, who come from different backgrounds. But me telling my story and them feeding back to me of how they perceived it and how I could improve it has definitely given me quite a lot of food for thought. So, it was really enjoyable and definitely worth doing.

My Audience Enjoyed My Story

I just told my story. I’m quite happy that I related it and the response for me is good and I realised that the audience enjoyed it.

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.
