Hello, this is Bronwyn Ritchie,
speech coach and story specialist from Your Story
Matters, and from a very young age I have been entranced
It started, I think, with Beatrix
Potter's Peter Rabbit and continues to this day.
The stories in books provide an alternate reality where
I can dive in and live and learn.
I am an inveterate people-watcher.
For everyone I see, talk to or learn from I create a
story. I do it for all sorts of animate and
inanimate things. Tell me your story ... or I will
make one up about you!
Because I learn from stories.
We all do. We are hard-wired
for story, and hard-wired to learn from story, and to
listen to story so that we learn. There is a
reason that the fairy tales and myths have persisted
through so many generations. There's a reason that
urban myths are perpetuated and memes go viral on our

And that's why Your Story
Matters. It has value to other people.
They can learn from it.
Learn to choose the aspects that
are useful to your target market, or whomever it is you
want to reach. Learn how to tell those aspects of
your story ... and you teach... and people learn.
What is it that you have to teach?
It is your story, the knowledge you have gained through
living that story and the wisdom you have gained from
My expertise is in teaching public
speaking. Over 40 years' involvement in the craft,
winning speech contests, being valued as "best
presentation" at a national speakers' conference, and
countless experiences of mentoring speakers, I have
built the skills as a teaching presenter. My value
to you, though, is the ability to teach you how to take
a subject and to create presentation content around it -
content designed to make an audience think outside the
box, to be engaged, to take action --- and then to
present it, with confidence and generosity.
love your presentations - simple, explanatory and always showing
another way to do it - great work, good teacher.
Bring me your story (your
experience, your knowledge and your wisdom) and I will
show you how to craft that content into a teaching
experience that you can use to attract clients to your
programs or to sell from the stage.
Too many people are marketing their
businesses using what my parents called "snake oil
sales" techniques. When you use your own story,

gain confidence in the area I want to teach in.
It's time for you to
Speak Your Story - Speak Your Inspirational Signature
to commit to an action plan for your speaking or you will
procrastinate again and lose the wonderful advantages you know
that speaking could bring for you.
Itís time to invest the time and the focus into becoming
a speaker, using speaking to transform your life and to create
transformation for others.
It's time to
break down the barriers you have erected to speaking, to learn
just what you need to create a speech, present it and succeed.
