Business Storytelling programs
1. “From Story to Success”
A unique, multi-dimensional workshop that purposeful storytelling with essential communication goals of organizational leaders and managers: to persuade, influence and inspire for effective results.
The workshop, which has been successfully run numerous times at global hi-tech companies in Israel and abroad, is a joint effort of mine along with Sharon Aviv, the Founder and Director of “Gollem”, the Multi-disciplinary Center for Storytelling in Israel. In this program, participants learn to use and upgrade their own professional material by learning, applying and practicing narrative tools and presentation. In “From Story to Success” one does not only learn about storytelling and its techniques, but immediately applies this learning to real-world, organizational and business goals. The joint venture offers the synergy of two skill sets for the benefit of participants: that of learning how to tell a story effectively as well as that of how to create and transmit the meaning in a business/organizational setting to get effective results.
Who gains with “From Story to Success”?
Corporate and Executive Leaders: can you imagine integrating powerful stories and metaphors in company meetings, Board of Directors meetings, keynote addresses, investor and public relations, among others?
Sales and Marketing Directors: think of where and how powerful stories can help differentiate and sell your products, make your presentation a “Wow!” and create that buzz we are all looking for…
Business Development and Finance: think of how effective your presentations will be after you master integrating stories to produce that financing and strategic agreements you are after!
Human Resources Managers: need to succeed at change management? M&A? Talent management? Recruitment? Getting your story “right” can make a world of a difference…
Trainers: stories can totally energize how you present so that listeners will listen better and remember more.
Project Managers: stories can motivate and prevent conflict among teams that are “matrix managed” and need to find that story to create the communication, bond and team you are looking for.
Customer Support: learning to use stories cuts down communication barriers, quickens understanding and enhances troubleshooting tips to solve common problems at different customer sites.
And there is more…
“From Story to Success” is a platform that awaits your specific needs. Programs can be as short as one half day to several days of intensive training, based on your needs. Videoconferencing sessions are also possible with prior notice.
“The synergy created by Ronnie and Sharon proved itself by giving our Elite Experts program what they needed: practical storytelling tools that can be developed, practiced and applied and the confidence to do so.”

2. Personal presentation coaching (PPC)
Perhaps you have an individual need to prepare or upgrade an important presentation for a specific deadline- in this case a short-term “PPC” framework may be more suitable, in which we do the following:
Listen to your presentation to see what is most in need of a “good shot in the arm” to get your message across.
Together we identify the stories which can make this happen.
Once the presentation is ready to go, we practice, you do the presenting and I the feedback and brainstorming until it is just what you are looking for…
The PPC can be extended into a wider scope of work to create the project kick-off that you might be in need of via the “Get-Go” program.
Personal Presentation Coaching can be carried out in person, by skype, phone, in small groups, all to meet your needs and timeframe.
“Ronnie challenged me totally out of my comfort zone to use story in my presentation at an Information Technology conference where there were tens of other presenters…I am so glad that I did. It was the major element that got people interested to meet with me afterwards, which was my main marketing objective.”
