When you hear the words X factor – you immediately start to wonder
What is my X factor? Do I even have one? What if I don’t have one?





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 …

I have been privileged to have a long association with Yamini. She brings a positive spirit and infectious energy to her work and always leaves behind a lasting impression. More than 10 years on, people from my old team still comment on Yamini’s engaging educational sessions, with great content and challenging fun exercises that have made a real difference to their ability to connect with people in their lives.

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
We brought in Yamini Naidu into AHI because we thought we could build storytelling skill... although for many of us, to be truthful, we didn’t quite believe we had the ability. In less than 2.5 hours, Yamini convinced us otherwise. She helped us take a nar rative of nearly nothingness and help us make it extraordinary. She showed us the beauty of a good story and the science that drives it. It is a skill that will now sit with all of our participants forever... it will help us in our work, it will help us commu- nicate with our colleagues...and it will help me get my teenage children to clean their room. With great thanks, Yamini.
Mark Henderson, Chief Executive Officer, AHI (Australasian Housing Institute)
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
I’ve yet to meet a person who hasn’t called themselves ‘Yamini’s #1 fan’ after seeing her speak. She is breathtaking in every way. Authentic and professional, hilarious and insightful, big on inspiration but even bigger on practical value. Audiences don’t just learn a few things or feel good for a few hours after seeing Yamini on stage. They find the courage and clarity to make immediate changes in their work, life and relationships, resulting in a tsunami of positive impact in their careers, families, organisations and communities. If you want a speaker who doesn’t just nail the brief, but leaves your audience enthralled, pick up the phone and call her agent ASAP!
