Influential Storytelling

Influential Storytelling is a powerful 8-Week Course that will make you an influential storyteller and public speaker.

Oratory is the power to talk people out of their sober and natural opinions.

What is Influential Storytelling?

Influential Storytelling will help you craft AND tell influential and compelling stories in any line of work or area of life.  The class covers how to craft a dynamic story using an easy storytelling structure, confidently tell and present stories, and where to find great stories that will inspire your audience. 


Here's the secret:

The best stories lie within you and it just takes a bit of intentional focus to find and hone them into compelling and dynamic stories that inspire the desired response from your audience. 

That is what this class is for!


Influential Storytelling provides detailed steps for crafting and telling influential stories, time to create and develop YOUR own story, as well as plenty of fun opportunities for improvisational speaking and practice exercises that will ensure that you feel confident and ready to share the story you need to tell.


Is this class

for me?

It's for you!  If...

  • You do any speaking in front of a group - which is most of us!

  • You feel your work presentations fall a bit flat and you wish to add stories that will inspire and motivate your audience to take the next step.

  • You are an entrepreneur who wants to influence your audience to buy your product or service.  

  • You are a leader ready to use stories to convey the values at the heart of your company to inspire your team and customers.  

  • You run an online business and want to clarify the story of your brand, learn to share that story with your audience, and grow your business.

  • You are an oral storyteller with a message to share and a desire to create strong emotional reactions from your audience.

  • You just want to feel more confident ANY time you have to speak in public - or speak at all. :)


If you are feeling timid up in front of a group,

you're not alone AND it doesn't have to stay that way! 

Confidence is only some practice away!

Erica's coaching technique is very affirming.  It allowed me to enthusiastically push past the boundaries of shyness and embarrassment to be more fully engaged in the discovery of what might be possible!

There are three things to aim at in public speaking: first, to get into your subject, then to get your subject into yourself, and lastly, to get your subject into the heart of your audience.
