This small group programme is for you if:
- work on your own, as a consultant, coach, adviser or practitioner
- run a small business or charity
- are developing your personal brand
and you want to:
Save time and money, by being clear on which bits of your story – that mix of experience, knowledge and values – will land most powerfully with your target audiences.
Boost your marketing, by being confident about sharing your stories in formats – written, video, audio – that will speak to the people you want to reach.
Build trust with prospects, by being consistent: when all your communications are drawn from your spoken words, every bit of content will be consistent. Nothing jars, and you build trust more quickly.
Make your mark faster, by being concise: once you are clear on which story angles make the most impact, you can whittle them down, and share them quickly when you network or pitch.
Get it done: with the support of the group and my facilitation (which spans 35 years, including training at the BBC) you will generate ideas and content from the start. No more sitting on wonderful stories that should be out there, bringing you rewarding and lucrative work.
4 x hour-long, fortnightly group Zoom sessions, with me and 3 other business/charity owners. All these calls are recorded in video and audio, so you have a permanent resource you can refer back to, for communications training and content ideas.
Raw content: in the week that follows each session I will share extracts from the recording, as video, audio or written quotes. These snippets will help you to understand the principles behind story-based communications and give you raw material for your website, social media, workshops and presentations.
Homework between the group sessions, to make sure you get on with it 😊. Each fortnightly exercise takes around half an hour. You’ll do it in pairs, to keep you accountable.
2 x 30-minute one-to-one sessions with me, to focus on what you need most. You choose when to have these, at any time over the two month-programme
- have the skills and qualifications to make a difference to them; the ‘head’ bit
- want to make a difference because you genuinely care about the work; the ‘heart’ bit.
When your future clients, referrers and advocates see this for themselves, they will buy into you more quickly.
