Imagine the moment

My interest was fading fast. I was at a prestigious business event, focusing on successful women and their journey to that success. The speakers were all – you guessed it – successful women.


They were not, however, successful at engaging their audience. It seemed that their brief had been to share their stories of how they came to where they are now and they did just that.


They started at the beginning, telling us what they studied at school, at college/university followed by what happened next, and then…, and then….


Please don’t ever do that!


Find a time in your story when the outcome was uncertain. Maybe waiting for the outcome of an interview, a moment of indecision, of when a different action could have changed the whole course of your life.


Take your audience to that moment of tension and then go back from there. Let them imagine the moment.


I can help you craft those stories. To find out how I work, book a call today.
