Public Speaking and Communication Coach

Why You Need To Tell Your Story

We are hardwired to tell and listen to stories- they are an ancient form of social bonding. 

Stories foster empathy and build relationships, they enhance communication, convey lessons, demonstrate your values and build trust by connecting us on a deeper level. So why are we so reluctant to share our personal stories in professional settings? 

In this session Tessa Rawson will explore why telling personal anecdotes is critical for building connection, trust and credibility in the workplace, and more importantly how to do it. She provides a framework for establishing which stories to tell, when and for what reasons.
