WeLead Circles

A peer to peer network exclusive for women leaders

Whether your goal is to sell, inspire or educate, your ability to tell a good story is an undeniably powerful leadership asset.

Steve Jobs believed that the most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. Virgin visionary Sir Richard Branson claims “The story of Virgin – its ups and downs, opportunities and challenges – is what attracts people to our products and services, and also to work with us. We would be nothing without our story.”

Join Peter Christie, one of the world’s most experienced business storytellers and author of Every Leader a Storyteller, to learn how to craft your most powerful delivery ever.

  • Speak like a leader.
  • Be a more entertaining and engaging speaker.

Especially for leaders, executives, speakers, marketing and sales professionals and trainers – mastering the art of telling a good story can be challenging. However, based on 30 years’ experience of leadership storytelling, Big Chief Talking Bull (a.k.a. Peter Christie) has distilled the most important storytelling principles into a simple toolkit, covered in this 4-hour master class. You will leave with the skills required for great, memorable storytelling and knowledge of how best to apply them in your role as a leader.

“Peter and Binnie Christie made us discover our own storytelling ability by giving theoretical background (little), telling their own stories (more) and making us do very practical exercises (mainly). The workshop was interesting, useful and entertaining.”Achim Klennert, CEO Hannover-Re
