There are a lot of people out there talking about “storytelling” in business, but the best storytelling doesn’t follow a “formula.” It goes beyond the superficial to make individual audience members recognize their own story in yours. Come explore the real power of meaningful stories and key components like conflict, suspense, and dramatic pacing. (To learn more, click the title above.)


I’ve been a trusted advisor to senior managers, and a peer mentor to individual contributors. I bring a multidisciplinary approach, looking at projects from a combined strategic, creative, and analytical perspective. Recognized as an innovative problem solver, I will also help you spot hidden obstacles in your existing messages. I help my clients . . .
