Episode in a Tweet: Leaders who invest in their storytelling skills inspire others, create movements, and connect with people at a deeper level.
Background: I met LaQuita several years ago at a CEO conference where she taught leaders how to tell stories on stage – impromptu. After seeing my peers transform with a few pointers, I knew I had to work with her. LaQuita has been my communication and speech coach for the past two years, and the results have been remarkable. She’s helped me tell powerful stories that inspire action and refine my stage presence. She’s been so impactful that I knew you would want to learn from her, too.
During this episode, LaQuita gives actionable tips on being more vulnerable – even when it makes you uncomfortable, crafting compelling stories that move people and being yourself on stage or in front of a camera. She also talks about her upcoming storytelling conference for women, Rock My Story, held in LA on February 22nd and 23rd. LaQuita is a total rockstar and I know you will love this interview.
