Inside-Out Storytelling Workshops

The overall curriculum consists of 5 topics. There is no correct sequence as any workshop can serve as the foundation for the others, and you can start with any workshop as your 'first'. The key is to continually add to your craft and skill for continual improvement and confidence. That's why the monthly Inside-out Storytelling Circle is so beneficial.  Every session is geared toward speakers and presenters who want to influence their audiences, whether for leadership, sales, coaching or changing the world.

PERFORMANCE & STAGE PRESENCE:
Speaking is more than just 'speaking'. It's about engaging your own mind, body, and spirit in order to engage the mind, body, and spirit of your audience; it's about going on a journey and taking the audience on that journey with you. In this workshop, you'll learn how to enhance your stage presence, and use your voice and stagecraft to elevate your talk to a powerful experience for the audience.

STORY STRUCTURE:
How to identify the key ‘story’ elements of your journey and structure them in a way that takes the audience along for the ride.

TOPIC DESCRIPTIONS THAT SELL:
Write your topic description, learning outcomes and biography to position yourself as an expert, get bums in seats, attract the interest of event planners… and serve as your best foundation for developing and describing your keynote, workshop or presentation.

IMPROV FOR SPEAKERS:
Veteran speakers know that being able to think, act and speak on your feet is just as important as rehearsing your talk 100 times. Here is where the elements of improv can really boost your confidence on stage, deal with unexpected situations, and perhaps most importantly, fuel your creativity as you develop your talk. Unlike 'general purpose' improv classes, this day is specifically designed for the needs of speakers.

THE CRAFT OF COMEDY FOR SPEAKERS:
Enhance your story with comic relief, chuckles and smiles. It's what makes the really good speakers really great speakers.


PRIVATE ONE-ON-ONE COACHING AND CONSULTING:
In addition to the workshops and masterclass, you can get private one-on-one coaching and consulting with Michel Neray, founder of momondays, by video conference, phone or in person.

Every speaker is unique. Every story is unique. Some improve by bringing out more heart. Others improve by bringing out more head. And still others improve by bringing out more funny bone. We took exactly what you need to be a great speaker and packaged them into a unique speaker training program that teaches you how to go from good to truly awesome.

"I was so impressed with the Virtual Workshop. What impacted me most was incorporating your teaching about where and how I might insert a pause... very useful and fun exercise!"
Catherine Sternberg, Assertiveness Coach
"Michel was able to deliver a flawless and engaging workshop online that bridged the gaps in geography. The content was timely and practical, as I refine my storytelling during this time of social distancing."
Delores Wurtz, TEC Canada Chair
"I loved the virtual format! It ran smoothly, allowed us to meet and easily work with new people, plus everyone had a chance to be heard and participate. It may have even helped us to be more focused and present than an 'in-person' experience."
Lisa Rickett, Life & Leadership Coach
"I participated in Michel's virtual storytelling workshop last week and it was super informative and fun AND I got to practice! Was just like being in person but even quieter and easier to focus! These classes are always full of valuable, take home material!"
Jeff Aldridge, workshop participant
"Being the first time I'd been to one of these virtually, I was a little apprehensive about how effective it would be, but it was great. I learned a lot about how to increase audience connection, and had the opportunity to practice it in the actual workshop."
Richard Hudson, Keynote Speaker & Adventurer
