Here’s what a good story did for me
By a strange turn of events, I joined a speaking group called Toastmasters. I had zero training and no reputation. I just felt I should give it a try.
I say zero experience but I had spoken in church and at a few weddings, nothing serious.
Here’s the David and Goliath part - nine months after joining Toastmasters, I won the UK and Ireland Public Speaking contest at my very first attempt, eventually placing third in the World Semi-finals in Las Vegas.
Sounds like something out of a movie, right?
I was shocked too, but this was no fluke.
I went on to win the UK College of Public Speaking Championship and then placed first place runner-up in the UK Humorous Speaking Contest finals.
I started getting emails and phone calls; companies would ask me to deliver workshops and people would ask me to coach them in the art of public speaking and help them to tell their stories.
I can’t put it down to experience, and it’s not that I was particularly gifted either.
It was all because of my story.
I placed everything I know about stories in my book
