If you are a business leader, a person who would like to lead, or if you would like to be led differently, you have come to the right website.
I’m Elaine Stirling, and I’m a corporate communication consultant in Toronto , Canada , who has written a little book called, The Corporate Storyteller: A Writing Manual & Style Guide for the Brave New Business Leader.
The cover of my book looks like this . . .
You will find lots of examples of business writing — good, bad, and ridiculous — with diagrams and techniques, reinforced by check lists.
The Corporate Storyteller is available through most major North American booksellers, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Chapters Indigo. Invite me to deliver a workshop, and I will personally bring copies of the book with me.
But here’s another truth. I wrote The Corporate Storyteller so that you will never have to hire me or any other consultant to fix communication problems in your workplace.
The trouble with hiring consultants is: a) we cost a lot; b) training is generally limited to a privileged few; and c) because the learning seldom trickles down, the problems for which you hire people like me soon start creeping in again.
If you are genuinely committed to changing the way your organization communicates internally and with your client or customer base, I invite you to order The Corporate Storyteller and read for yourself how to do it. If, after reading the book, you would still like me to design and deliver a workshop on-site, drop me a line at email@example.com., and we’ll talk.
My clients include international banks, manufacturers, retailers, not-for-profit agencies and top-tier business schools. I have witnessed communication breakthroughs in IT, Accounting, HR, and Marketing departments from the executive level to front line. You will find some of their stories (anonymous, of course) in The Corporate Storyteller.
If you’re new to my website, I hope you will take a few minutes to explore the other pages: Amphora, Lexicon and Third Revolution Archives. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to read The Corporate Storyteller . . . and perhaps we’ll meet one day.
