No One Likes a Boring Story!
This trend has seen droves of clients at Voice Science desperate to stop boring their peers and inspire through the art of storytelling.
Why is it so hard to tell stories at work?
Well, because it’s easy to assume that it can’t be that hard.
But it is.
Otherwise, everyone would have a shiny Pulitzer Prize on their bookshelf.
The Little Shot is here to build your communication in lots of little shots until you become a Big Shot communicator (in the nicest possible way), so I hope you find this episode affirming.

Don’t do it alone.
Placing high expectations on your communication without the tools to correct it is not realistic.
If I want to learn how to surf (which I do) I’ll hire a surfing instructor. If you want to learn to tell better stories, enrol in a course, buy a book on the topic for a basic start or send me an email!
