Meet master business storyteller Jordan Bower
I help others transform into storytellers,
having done it myself.
The year I turned 30, I spent a year walking alone down the West Coast of the US, from Canada to Mexico, learning to become a storyteller. More than a decade later, what I experienced while walking still resonates through my work.
I am grateful for the opportunity to share the practical lessons from my experience in my business storytelling workshops. Journey with me—no beard required!
What happens in a business storytelling workshop
Get new tools & mindsets for communicating with impact
Every team can dramatically improve their impact by using business storytelling, no matter whether they are speaking to customers, stakeholders, or entire cultures.
Master storyteller Jordan Bower introduces business storytelling to teams—what it is, why it works, and how to use it practically.
Practice building skills in creativity, empathy, and active listening.
Every workshop begins with unique and interactive exercises that help participants think differently about how they communicate.
These personal and trust-building exercises give teams a strong foundation for understanding business storytelling.
Apply these concepts to real functional stories and see the benefits immediately
In the second half of the workshop, teams shift to working with the real stories they tell their customers and stakeholders.
Applying our tools to their real stories ensures that everyone walks away with highly tangible takeaways that can shift strategy immediately.
