If you’re looking for a master storytelling coach and trainer who can teach your people how to tell THEIR stories in a more effective and engaging manner, you’ve come to the right place. This is not theory based education, this is practical application.

“We brought Doug Stevenson in to teach his Story Theater Method to both our senior trainers and our senior management here at Oracle University. He was a huge success. Since that time, I’ve personally used what I learned from Doug and have found it to be practical, valuable and fun. I’ve also hired him two more times to work with other groups. His workshop is both inspirational and very practical, with easy-to-use tools and techniques. I’m constantly looking for opportunities to bring Doug back into Oracle and I highly recommend him. Doug Stevenson delivers!”
Elizabeth Wiseman, VP, Oracle University

What sets The Story Theater Method for storytelling in business apart?

Great stories are more like a movie than a report. Like a good movie, they are crafted to stimulate an emotional as well as a logical response. They are engaging and effective because they activate the listener’s imagination. You haven’t really connected with your audience until you’ve told a story.

Just telling a story however is not enough. You’ve got to know what you’re doing to be effective. If it’s the wrong story, told in a rambling, all-over-the-place manner, without a strategic point that is well branded, it can be a waste of everyone’s time.

Doug will make you a better speaker and storyteller.

Doug Stevenson has been described by his clients as a master storyteller. Unlike many talented performers, however, Doug’s ability to show you how to be a great storyteller is what has made him a sought after speaker, trainer and coach.

He’ll show you how it’s done and within a very short time, have you on your feet telling stories that have the power to inspire and influence others.
