STORYTELLING CONSULTANT FOR BUSINESSES WHO WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Hello! I am Carmel Finnan
I’ve taken the scenic route in life, which has led me to remarkable places, interesting people and life-changing experiences! And that scenic, circuitous route has led me to doing what I do now – working as a Storytelling Consultant.
Through my various careers as a teacher, lecturer, mentor & coach, I learned how our stories are carried and crafted in the conversations we have with each other. When we develop our storytelling skills, we are able to share our stories with others as part of a dialogue. That’s how we create greater engagement and deepen our relationships.
My work is all about sharing the skills and benefits of storytelling as a way of doing business in a world shifting from hype and manipulation to connection & community.
Here’s one important lesson I’ve learned over the years working as a Storytelling Consultant for businesses who want to make a difference:
“It doesn’t matter how noble our causes are, how brilliant our ideas, or how unique our service or product is. If we can’t inspire trust and connection at a human level 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. Love it here!
Grew up in Ireland and worked there for many years. A country and culture with its own special vibe.
