Talk Title: Let's Tell Better Stories

You own your story, you are your story. But, are you telling it as well as you can?

This talk is about the power of story and choice, how narrative can help us to become agents of our own transformation. Why it is such a powerful tool for leaders today, why it helps us to build relationships, inspire action and make movements.

What happens when people start to share stories with intention and strategy. Why we need to become better storytellers to help us navigate a time of disruption and change.

Immediate action takeaways are threaded throughout. Sally will share how anyone can become a better storyteller, if they know how.

Because the truth is the world needs women to stand up , share their story and shine bright - now more than ever.

"Just so powerful. Thanks so much. You're great at connecting strands and letting people + prompting people to speak their truth. Something big has changed for me as a result of that prompting." - Audience feedback 2018
