COMMUNICATION & STORYTELLING CONSULTANT
Hello! I'm Carmel Finnan
I’ve taken the scenic route in life which has led me to remarkable places, fulfilling careers and life-changing experiences! And that scenic route has also led me to doing what I do now – working as a Communication & Storytelling Consultant for professionals, micro and small businesses.
My work is all about helping clients develop effective communication skills that actually work for them. I created the Story Dialogue Process for people like you who want to be easily found by those looking for what you do – without compromising your values or your personality with slick automation sequences, in-your-face promotions, flashy ads or hollow soundbites.
My simple, customised approach combines real storytelling with interactive dialogue which enables you to rise above the deafening noise of the marketplace and position your business to resonate with the right audience.
Here’s what I’ve learned over the years in my various careers as a teacher, lecturer, mentor, coach and now as a Communication & Storytelling Consultant:
“It doesn’t matter how noble our cause, how brilliant our idea, or how unique our service or product is. If we can’t inspire trust and connection through real dialogue with each other, we leave ourselves with no option but to hustle our hollow monologues to an increasingly disengaged audience.”
I live in Berlin, a city always in improvisation mode.
I grew up in Ireland and worked there for many years. It's a country with its own special vibe.
BEST ADVICE I RECEIVED
After initially ignoring this advice, I learned to let go of strategies that didn't suit, clients who were the wrong fit and advice that didn't resonate.
