Uncover the Power of Impactful Storytelling in your Life, Business & Career
YOUR Big Story! is a 4-week training program to help you understand, craft, and share your unique story with the world around you.
It helps you communicate with heart and engage through storytelling. Whether you’re a creator struggling to get clear on your story, a job seeker trying to impress potential employers, or an experienced marketer just needing to level up, this program was made to help you. Craft and share your story in a way that will motivate and connect you in new ways to the world around you.
Have you ever wanted to share an idea, perspective or a story with the world?
But you didn’t know how to say it or where to start? Do you struggle to get that presentation or speech just right or infuse your personal experiences into the story of your business? Do you worry that what you have to say isn’t relevant?
At Storytelling University, we’ve been storytellers all our lives. It comes easily to us. But working with our clients over the years helped us realize that’s not the experience for everyone. A lot of folks have decided they’re just not creative or just don’t have the words which means they can’t be storytellers, but that’s just not true.
We created this storytelling foundations program to share the fundamentals of impactful storytelling and guide you through understanding, crafting and sharing your own big, beautiful stories. It’s designed to help you share YOUR big story with impact and relevance.
How It Works
We collaborated with a learning design expert to tailor the four-week program to the needs of busy but passionate Creative Independents. Training videos are released weekly on Monday and sent directly to your inbox with links to download worksheets and frameworks you can get started learning right away. Then every Sunday, after you’ve had the week to do the worksheets, we hop on a one-hour live Q&A call where you can get feedback and answers to questions that came up for you that week.
We’ve created a course that ensures that we are in it together and you get to the end feeling confident and capable of telling your unique story in all areas of your life. All of the training is online and accessible through the Storytelling University student portal.
You're Never Alone
Four weeks of video instruction and weekly live Q&As to uncover and craft your unique story. You’ll receive an email each Monday with links a short video lesson and downloadable worksheets.
