Storytelling for Businesses

We show you how the power of a good story influences and motivates teams to new heights.

story-tellingThe power of a good story can influence people, motivate staff and even create cultures. Stories can bring alive speeches and dry subjects, they can capture our imaginations and make messages digestible in a way that cold, hard facts can’t. Great leaders and top CEOs today use stories to illustrate points, sell their ideas and engage with people.

SureSpeech believes there is a storyteller within us all. We will help you to develop your own, personal style of telling stories. We will explore what makes a good story and how we can use these techniques as tools to improve presenting, influencing, motivating, coaching and negotiation at work.

Whether for large crowds or intimate gatherings, our training will help you to develop confidence in communicating directly with others. You will gain storytelling skills to create messages that will resonate to audiences. We will explore the narrative structure of a story, what works and what does not. We will look at the ‘performance’ side to storytelling, such as how we use our voice and body, use our spontaneity and instinct. All of these will enhance our communication, leadership and motivational skills.
“Over the years I have become convinced that we learn best—and change—from hearing stories that strike a chord within us…Those in leadership positions who fail to grasp or use the power of stories risk failure for their companies and for themselves” — John Kotter, Harvard Business School professor, and author Leading Change

One-to-One training is ideal if you are working on a specific speech or presentation. You may already have a speech prepared and require that trained ‘outside eye’  enabling you to connect with your audience and present your speech with clarity and conviction.

You might simply wish to improve all aspects of your delivery for future presentations or speeches.

One-to-One is also perfect for voice training. Perhaps you would like your voice to become clearer, more confident and have more impact. Or would like to soften an accent and gain better articulation.


We offer flexible training options that will help you address your organisation’s requirements. We offer different levels of training depending on the experience of your staff – building key skills and confidence for those who are new to presenting or enhancing and fine tuning skills of more experienced staff.

Although much of our training is small group based (e.g. up to 12 attendees), we also run Masterclasses in Public Speaking – from 45 minutes through to 1 day (or more) for groups of any size.
