The Stories You Tell…
Make The Speaker You Become!
Live Online Workshop
Connecting you to your listeners
“The only thing more important than stories and humor to speakers is oxygen.”
If you’re not telling stories you’re missing the boat. If you’re telling stories poorly, you’re sinking it. One of my favorite quotes about speaking is from Andy Rooney – “You’re more interested in what you have to say than anyone else is”. This is so true, especially for content-rich experts who really have important things to say but listening to them feels like a death march.
My live online workshop The Stories You Tell…Make the Speaker You Become is specifically designed for content-rich experts who need to make their presentations more interesting, memorable, and persuasive. Its primary emphasis is StorySelling®; linking stories to your content. Stories are magic. They connect you to listeners and influence them in ways that logic and data cannot. Stories can be joyful or soulful. They make us laugh and cry. They make us real. All great leaders and speakers throughout history have used stories to influence listeners to act and stir their imaginations; you can too.
The humor aspect of this workshop is about finding your funny; how to think funny and bring clean humor into your stories and content-rich presentations.
This is not a comedy, how-to-tell-jokes workshop.
The goal of the workshop is for each attendee to develop and rehearse an original story that adds distinction and interest to their content.
Enrollment is limited to 15 students. Tuition is $795 per person. Because it is a limited attendance workshop, tuition is nonrefundable. If a student cancels, tuition will be applied to a future workshop.

Dr. Paul Homoly, CSP
I hold the highest earned designation in professional speaking – Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) – from the National Speakers Association. I am the first dentist worldwide to earn this distinction.
I have written two books on the topic of becoming an interesting expert; Just Because You’re Leading …Doesn’t Mean They’ll Follow and Just Because You’re an Expert…Doesn’t Make You Interesting. This is important to you because the content in my books are gleaned from the hundreds of hours I’ve spent in classrooms coaching experts. You can have confidence in my coaching process.
I practice what I preach. I make a good portion of my income from speaking at meetings and hosting workshops. This is not a hobby; it’s the real deal for me and can be for you too.
I have a 20 plus years successful track record as a speaker development coach and thought leader. I’ve personally experienced most speaking situations and coached an incredibly wide range of experts
