We all know that telling stories makes you more powerful in your presentations. It’s how your ideas can change your world. This training is for you if you’re not enthusiastic about “telling stories”… if you’re a Reluctant Storyteller.
What’s included in the Reluctant Storyteller Starter Pack?
This is about story-telling tools to get the job done so we’re going to concentrate on using stories in the real world. Sure, you’ll learn how to tell stories in your presentations but it’s bigger than that, because we’ll look at how using stories will help you and we’ll look at the tools for actually doing that.
We’ll get tactical and we’ll dirty.
It’s going to be about advanced story-telling… using stories to change the way you present and the way the world works around you, so you’re going to get
- the Reluctant Storyteller short Ebook
- a timed sequence of emails, each with techniques, tips, tools and tactics … and pointers to videos and other recordings we’ve made just for you.
This is a short, sharp course in story-using. No fluff, no filler and it’s awesome, but… but you have to do the work. There’s no big red shiny help button because at $8.75 one of us is going to have to do the sweating and it can’t be me 😉
I’ll probably throw in some free-bits at some point, too.

What sort of style and content does Reluctant Storyteller include?
Being a reluctant storyteller is about using stories, not just telling them. I started out life as a research scientist (I’ve also been an actor, lighting designer, author, playwright and fire eater!) so the content is about the science of making stories work, not just as entertainment.
So here are a few quick and dirty live broadcasts I’ve done recently which should give you a feel. Storytelling isn’t fluffy.
The three stages of using stories… when you get good enough to not notice that you’re telling stories…
Recovering if you’ve got carried away in your storytelling… in which I get carried away complaining about people who get carried away…
What’s a story matrix and how important is it to get it the right way around? (Very!)
