HOW TO PICK A STORYTELLING CONSULTANT
Image

NO. 1

ARE THEY A MASTER STORYTELLER?You want to learn from a master storyteller. Consultants can be messy, mediocre or masterful. Get them to share a story and judge for yourself. Always learn from the best.

NO. 2

HOW LONG HAVE THEY OFFERED STORYTELLING?Lots of people are jumping on the storytelling bandwagon so you need specific years and not ambiguous answers like ‘I have always been a storyteller”.

NO. 3

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MEASURABLE RESULTS?Have they shifted engagement scores, doubled revenue or impacted bottom line and can they share these with you?

NO. 4

HOW DO THEY ACTUALLY TEACH STORYTELLING?It’s always a grave mistake to bring someone in who can talk about storytelling as being powerful and memorable (which it is) and then not give your leaders any practical skills they can use to construct and share stories around a business purpose.
NO. 5
IS THERE AN EXAMPLE OF A STORY THEIR CLIENTS USED FOR BUSINESS?This one is gold! As it shows the results clients have had and that the skill was actually transferred and used for results.
NO. 6
DO THEY HAVE A BEST SELLING BOOK ON STORYTELLING?I just threw this one in, because I do! But if you are undecided, this can be a clincher …

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Yamini led our leadership team on a storytelling journey which was remarkable in both its insight and impact. Her ability to identify and distil the key elements of a situation, and package these into an engaging narrative, drawing on emotion and instinct as well as logic, is unique in my experience. Yamini transforms the mundane to the inspiring, thereby bringing to life both the story and the storyteller.
Grant Kelley, Chief Executive Officer, Vicinity Centres Limited
We recently used Yamini for our premier client event, where she toured Australia’s capital cities presenting to hundreds of our clients. Yamini has a compelling story to tell and one that resonated extremely well with our business clients. Yamini’s style is highly engaging and in many ways enchanting, as she shares the secret power of storytelling through practical examples. I would highly recommend Yamini to anyone thinking about how to create greater engagement with their clients or employees.
Don Sillar, Head of Sales, ANZ Private
The ability to create a connection and shared under- standing with another person is a valuable human gift. The art of storytelling is powerful in creating that connection and understanding. Yamini Naidu is a master in the art of helping leaders to build sto- ries that create a vision for the future, creating con- nection and trust. I have worked with Yamini for eight years and I am constantly guided by the princi- ples she taught me as I know it will help me build a compelling message that people can relate to.
Noeleen Carey, Organisational Development Manager – Leadership, Workforce Transformation, Engagement and Change Management, RMIT University
Yamini attended our all-company meeting and showed us not only the importance but also the impact of storytelling. She engaged the whole group from start to finish. She did it in such a wonderful way that had us all thinking hard about how we could tell our own stories; after all, we all have an interesting story to tell!
Allison Rossiter, Managing Director Roche Diagnostics Australia
Yamini spoke at our 2019 conference in June and the feedback overwhelmingly indicated that Yamini should have been a keynote! To address this, we invited her on our August lunch roadshow around Australia and had our biggest numbers in all locations. Yamini’s engaging and humorous style made her stories memorable, complimented by her warm and friendly nature. Her session on storytelling, with examples woven throughout, helped association professionals realise the potential stories can have including demonstrating the value of being a member.
Toni Brearley, Chief Executive Officer, Australasian Society of Association Executives
Our Executive Team at Dental Health Services Victoria had the privilege of a Story Telling Masterclass with the amazing Yamini Naidu. The team came away inspired and able to tell their stories in their own voice. We have been putting our new skill to good use to help join the dots for our teams and create authentic connections. The team rated it the best workshop they have done in decades. Thanks, Yamini.
