The Speaking Story Course

develop and deliver stories that connect, catalyze and convert!


You have a message for the world. 

Turns out, you also have a story to tell!

Because telling the story behind our message is the most important tool in your speaking toolkit, and it's worth investing in. 

The story at the heart of your message is THE KEY to your audience's emotional engagement, commitment, connection and willingness to take action. 

So in Speaking Story, together with expert Speaking Coach Sally Zimney, we'll develop your "origin" or "signature" story for that message that will make your idea matter to others, help you own the moment, and elevate your role as thought-leader and change-maker!



Here's what you get:

5+ hours of video lessons

Lesson plans, engaging video lessons, video examples of great storytelling, downloadable resources, and a printable workbook that walks you through each lesson step-by-step. 

Personalized instruction from speaking expert and coach, Sally Zimney

Take part in weekly LIVE Q&A's to get your specific questions answered, and connect with other speakers through our private Facebook group, the TMM Talk Club

Powerful Industry Bonuses

What will we be covering?

The science of storytelling (not story writing)

 what works and why - as well as the art: the nuances that will honor your authentic voice and help you step into the moment with confidence. 

How to find THE moment to highlight

and develop the action so it will connect to your audience in a powerful way.

Overcoming Barriers

If it were easy, everyone would be doing it (well)! Discover essential tips to move on stage, deliver your story with confidence, and help you overcome the barriers that are keeping you from owning the moment and connecting with your audience

The Four Modules:

What is it? Why is it?

Dive into what a signature story is (and isn't), and why it is perhaps the most important element in our talks. It isn't just a personal journey; it can create movements and catalyze customers. 

The Tenets of a Good Story

What makes a GOOD story? What makes a bad one? We'll look beyond the basics to the nuances of memorable and impactful stories. 

The Structure of a Story

We'll build a basic "origin" story together, and then begin to build your own. You got this!

Sharing our Stories

We are speakers, not writers - so just creating a story doesn't make it easy to stand up and speak it. This is where the magic happens, so we'll wrestle with some of the key elements of delivery and stage movement, and how we can step out with more confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When does the course start and finish?
  • The doors open for course enrollment beginning on April 8, and close May 2nd. Once enrolled, you can dive into the modules at your own pace - as quickly or as leisurely as you like, and you will have lifetime access to the private Facebook group, the This Moved Me Talk Club. Each week, Sally will be in the private TMM Talk Club to take your questions and help you personalize the course curriculum. 

  • How long do I have access to the course?
  • How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.

  • How much time should I expect to spend each week?
  • That's really up to you! Each module is around 60 minutes of video lessons, and I would expect to take an additional hour for each module to do the homework and move your story development forward. I would highly recommend also spending 15 minutes each day in the TMM Talk Club (our private Facebook group you gain access to with this course) - where each day I'll be posting prompts, answering questions, and geeking out on all things talks! Developing our speaking can be isolating, and we can gain so much from stepping into community together. 

  • Who is this class ideally for?
  • I like to say this class was built for entrepreneurs, thought leaders and change-makers who want to share the story of their idea to help connect with, catalyze, and convert their audiences. But anyone who tells a story to elevate their idea/business/message/mission can find value and impact in this course. An ideal student in this class is someone who also takes the time to improve (because those that work to improve, do!), a willingness to risk and get a little vulnerable (that's what good speakers do!), and who wants to join and contribute to a supportive community of Movers and thought leaders!
