Storytelling: Performance of a relevant story for your audience
Begin or end your event with a storyteller who really knows how to engage and entertain your audience. From difficult work situations, to family and children, marriage, singing professionally, travel, and outdoor recreation, Sarah has a wide range of stories to share. Your audience will experience a spectrum of emotion from joy and excitement to grief and resilience. Here are some samples of Sarah's storytelling performances:
Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone
Even those who regularly step out of their comfort zones will find this topic engaging and relevant. Sarah will share solid strategies and examples for the participants to implement in their daily lives. A comfort zone isn't just a location, and stepping out of it allows room for creativity, improved communication skills, and personal growth.
Your stories don't define you. How you share them will.
Whether you're telling your stories to yourself, or sharing them with others, how you remember them and tell them impacts your perception of yourself, and the perception others have of you. Call it a personal brand, a professional brand, or a reputation, your stories help connect people to you and become ambassadors for your and your services. Being intentional about which stories to tell and how, can reduce the gap between how you think you're being perceived and how you're actually being perceived, making it easier to develop stronger relationships.
Improve Sales through Storytelling
It's one thing to be able to share a relevant story in order to connect authentically with an audience. It's an entirely different thing to know how to draw out the stories of the people around you, and that's where Elkins Consulting provides a unique value proposition.
Interactive workshops and breakout sessions are our specialty. Your participants will leave with clear strategies for sharing the right stories, with the right level of vulnerability, in order to draw out the stories of their potential customers. When your sales and executive teams can share stories and draw out the stories of the people around them, they will find much deeper connections and improved communication in every environment.
storytelling to improve communication
The data confirms what we've known since the beginning of humanity: Stories connect us and define us as individuals and communities. If your organization is not capturing the value in your story and the stories of your employees and customers, you're missing a huge opportunity to truly connect internally and with your external stakeholders and clients. Your story is unique, and how you share it matters. Sarah will bring this topic to life with practical strategies for sharing stories in a variety of methods and platforms, developing the right stories for the right audiences, and examples and exercises for your audience to practice and perfect.
