Storytelling Works

How storytelling works for speakers and leaders

Communicate better with your staff, your board, your shareholders, your customers. Build your market’s confidence in your brand using storytelling, customer focus and emotional connection. Let me help you get your strategic messages into short, sharp stories that impact, stick and make a difference.

Here’s how I help you get so good, they can’t ignore you

STEP ONE. Watch this video and see how storytelling gives you connection, productivity, profit and safety.

STEP TWO. Read my White Paper, Storytelling Works


In the seventies, eighties, and nineties, storytelling evoked a default negative response because 'storytelling' conjured images of picture books, library performers in silly hats, jugglers, kiddies' parties and bedtime. When coupled with the word 'business', it sounded ridiculous.

In those last fifty years this hard-hat belief has produced myriad failures, but I’m relieved to see storytelling making a comeback.

In the white paper I explain;


1. Unless corporations (and government) pay attention to values, virtues and what some call 'soft stuff', recent history will repeat itself.
2. Business, corporate life and politics are made of people—humans with emotions, needs, values, fears, and only storytelling meets them in that arena.
3. Storytelling doesn’t mean joining a troupe of Halloween performers or showing off at staff parties? No. Being a storyteller means being a connector, a wise and sentient communicator, a sensitive and empathetic sharer of truth; being the spiritual champion of the organization.

Laurene Bevaart endorses working with Colin Pearce as a speaker I've been giving presentations all my life. I was a high school teacher and a TV performer in Gladiators so I always felt natural on my feet in front of a crowd. However. Working with Colin Pearce as a speaking coach took me to a new level. With a combination of observation, face to face feedback and coaching on Skype, he helped me craft and perfect my personal story into my presentations where I am getting amazing results  and sales – and further bookings.

Lockie Cooke endorses Colin Pearce as a speaker I started working with Colin Pearce through a network of Australia’s most distinguished speakers of the Professional Speakers Association. Colin offered his valuable time to coach and mentor me as part of the associations up and coming speaker development through the Kerry Nairn Scholarship in 2011. It was for my first major speech which was in Parliament House in the Grand Hall. I spoke in front of many distinguished guests and as a 21-year old, I was very inexperienced with sharing a story and getting a message across. Colin persevered with my inexperience and built the confidence from within me to present a memorable speech that I still hear about today. The way Colin can identify one’s uniqueness, and encourage them to share authentically is something that I will always cherish. Colin’s skills as a speaker and a speaker trainer is suitable for the seasoned veteran to the novice first-time speaker.

Tim Burrow recommends Colin PearceTaking a series of speech coaching lessons with Colin is like learning to read and write all over again only this time I had enough understanding and maturity to appreciate the benefits that were coming my way! My skin was thick enough, my voice deep enough and my spirit strong enough to absorb the constructive, insightful (and occasional ‘admonishment’) that leads to rapid learning. All my listeners are thankful that Colin took me under his spell of articulating everything splendidly.
