Speaking about words...

Style Your Copy: 30 minutes to more powerful story-telling. 

If you have a website, write a blog, are active on social media, or even send an email – congratulations, you’re a copywriter!

But are your words building your brand? Or do they fall flat and send readers to your competition?

In this entertaining, engaging, and informative 30-minute talk, I share simple tips that can take your business writing from utterly-forgettable to unforgettable.

Learning how taking a more intentional approach to the words you choose can help you:
> Overcome the fear of a blank page
> Identify and embrace your unique voice
> Tell a compelling story that connects, engages, and inspires

I also take the audience through some common copy-writing no-no’s, and share strategies on how you can repurpose your best writing so you can save time and reach a wider audience.    

Come ready with your copywriting questions!


What’s Your Story? - The Power of Your Personal Narrative

If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a journalist it’s that everyone has a story – even you!

In this 30-minute hands-on presentation, I invite the audience to consciously consider their personal narrative, and how it has shaped who they are today.

We’ll explore two stories, the one we acknowledge but keep to ourselves, and the one we share with the world. I’ll share my own public story and invite participants to take part in a brief journaling exercise where they will begin to uncover powerful insights into who they are, why they do what they do, and what they need to start doing to create more meaning in their life.

Participants will not be asked to share what they have written, but those who wish to do so will have the opportunity to discuss any personal revelations with the group.

Finally, I’ll share practical tips on how to use your personal narrative to create more professional success.

"Your contribution in leading us to begin composing our own narrative story helped bring back some absolutely wonderful memories from childhood and on.My enjoyment, at a young age, of playing and drawing with paper dolls lead, many years later, to a serious association in the art world...partly because I allowed it to happen."
