Storytelling: Presentations to Elevator Pitches

Andrew was a great instructor and has a gift of teaching with applications and exercises during the class that were interactive, fun, and practical. He was able to explain the relevancy of storytelling across many presentation types and explain how it works across different communication forms. Super informative, thanks Andrew!

I learned more from this single-session class than I ever did during 8/10 session-classes. It was wonderful! Even though it was on a Monday night, Andrew was energetic and motivating. He moved quickly through the information and was a natural and engaging public speaker. He had video examples that he shared with the class that were very helpful—it was great to see the materials actually being used in practice. The class size was smallish (enough to fit around a conference room table), and he divided the class time into instruction and fast-paced storytelling/pitching with partners. I very much plan on taking more of Andrew's classes in the future.

This was a really eye opening class, realized that there’s more in any conversation than just the talk. The instructor will walk you through step by step with exercises to put in practice the theory. Definitely worth it, specially for business and life.

I found Andrew's class engaging and insightful. Andrew is a great instructor and covered an incredible amount of content. At the conclusion of the class I left with a renewed confidence for approaching the interview conversation and specific techniques to succeed. I landed the job a week later!!! Thanks Andrew!

Great class- gave me a new perspective for creating elevator pitches. I’ve taken pitch classes before and the heavy emphasis on storytelling was a welcomed lesson. Instructor was animated (overly so but he said he was highly caffeinated) which for the most part was fine but a bit jarring at times. Finally, I loved the one on one work- though it would have been easier if we were instructed to use the same narrative/story throughout the night. Ie first prompt was “tell a story of ...”, the next prompt “ok now tell another story where...” which caused some confusion. Overall I would recommend

Excellent teaching Lots of information Only downside was that the same room was not ideal for multiple simultaneous conversations

Public speaking was always been a dreaded thought of mine; it always made me feel anxious and apprehensive even at the thought of it. I was even anxious to take classes like this one because of the thought of needing to present. But Andrew gave us the tools necessary to combat the inner voice that becomes our saboteurs and that is essentially the core focus of the class...the rest follow. I learned how essential breathing is and all the little cues I never realized deterred me from speaking publicly well previous. I will definitely take more classes from The Story Source.

Really fantastic class. Andrew broke down a lot of the process in a way I never thought of before and provided a solid framework for me to consider my incoming interviews from. We also had the opportunity to practice storytelling with other members of the class, who ranged in experience and industry. Overall the class was informative and helpful on the interview I had next day!
