1:1 Story Coaching


Get your story performance ready in our 60 minute private sessions.


1:1 story coaching sessions will get you the authentic first-person narrative and the polished performance you are looking for. Are you preparing to pitch? Giving a Ted Talk, or holding an impromptu meeting with a prospective client? Dive deeper into the personal experiences that connect with the message and brand of your business.

Have you ever taken a music lession? Our 60 minute session is set up in that style. In each session, Hillary Rea (founder of Tell Me A Story) will work with you on warm-up exercises,  techniques, and repertoire to expand your public speaking arsenal. 

This includes:

  • Brainstorming the stories that will work for your audience
  • Prepping each story using both written exercises and "story beats" outline.
  • Practice and performance
  • Detailed feedback and action plans

Note: These sessions are available in-person in Center City, Philadelphia or virtually via Zoom. 

I took my first storytelling course with Tell Me A Story back in 2015. Hillary gave my jumbled ideas structure and clarity, while maintaining my own voice. I eventually pitched that story to Risk!, my podcast obsession. When I found out that my story was accepted, I was so excited and nervous to have my story out there for anyone to hear. I reached out to Hillary right away. She sat with me, patiently, giving me notes and tweaks until I felt confident and comfortable going in front of an audience. It was a moment I will forever be proud of.
