THE ‘STORY-SELLING’ APPROACH

A powerful way to connect and persuade

“Selling yourself and your ideas gets a lot easier when you become a storyteller. It makes your message more meaningful, memorable and persuasive. This is the basis of my work in communication skills. It’s the story-selling method – a kind of ‘Verbal PR’. Don’t just inform people with facts; inspire them with a great story!”

HOW IT WORKS

Learn how to tell a better story about your product or service – attract new opportunities, build a loyal following and engage your own employees.

Andrew’s work is a mixture of consultancy, individual coaching, group training or content creation. It generally falls into 3 stages:

Creation – work together to craft your story

Delivery – make sure you tell that story well in multiple situations

Circulation – the power of storytelling is when it starts to spread. Explore how this might work for you.

So proud of my daughter - she started as an intern a few months ago and now, as a FT employee, she's a highlighted speaker at this business event in Manchester. #publicspeaking lnkd.in/dpBUCbW
