Sarah was pure lightening and a gem. She understood her audience and recognized the industry in which she was speaking. She brought personal experiences and related very well with her audience. I would not only recommend her but will likely ask her to speak at more events.
— Korey Amrine, ITMI Conference Organizer

storytelling as performance

Hire Sarah for a storytelling performance at your next event! Given a prompt and a description of the audience, Sarah will perform a story that will make your audience laugh, sigh, and feel like they are right there in the thick of it.

Keynotes & workshops

Planning a conference or retreat? There is no better way to begin than to connect and engage your participants with a storytelling session. Following a session, participants will understand and have the basic tools to implement some important components of storytelling. Body language, image, tone of voice, facial expression, and content are some of the keys to telling a great story. Participants will be entertained, and will have an improved ability to read an audience and to adjust to meet the needs of that audience.

Storytelling is an extremely effective way to improve internal communication and customer service. Let Elkins Consulting design a program for you or your group that shows you simple techniques to craft your stories to enhance communication with your team and your customers.

Facilitation of Groups & Workshops

Begin your important meeting with a storytelling session to energize your participants, make them more comfortable and open for necessary interaction, and put them in a communication mindset. 

When you have a group of people who must come to conclusions that meet your needs, we can help. We facilitate sessions based on group-identified goals for the organization and the session.

I will walk your group through strategies to reach those goals, identify tasks and timelines for participants, and follow up to encourage completion of those tasks.

Your participants will leave sessions with tools to better communicate with colleagues and customers.
