BUSINESS STORYTELLING COACH
One-on-One Business Storytelling Coaching from Presentation Hero
Grow Your Storytelling Skills and Get Heard
Leverage storytelling to engage, clarify, entertain, persuade, sell, educate and inspire. Connect with your peers and prospects at a deeper level. Use stories to prime your audience emotionally and intellectually, make yourself heard, and get your point across.
Master the Power of Business Storytelling
If you want to turn your business into a successful brand, tell a better story, and build your reputation through storytelling.
Business storytelling uses the story structure for internal and external communication, collaboration, and marketing.
It’s a universal set of tools that you can use to create a memo, a paper, a press release, a presentation, a video, or a long-term business strategy.
My approach to storytelling is practical: learn how to raise attention, engage your audience, leverage conflict, and close any interaction like a seasoned pro. It’s easy if you know how to apply the traditional three act structure in business.

Storytelling Coaching For Innovation
Innovation can’t happen in isolation. New ideas need to spread and catch the world’s imagination. Successful innovators are naturally great storytellers.
With your storytelling coach & trainer, you will learn how to explain innovation with empathy, making meaning, and inspiring your audience.
Storytelling Coaching For Digital Transformation
Transformation needs to be explained, comprehended, and accepted. Business Storytelling deals with transformation at its core and is the perfect companion of a successfully deployed digital transformation project.
With your storytelling coach & trainer, you will enable your digital transformation team with a superpower: the ability to cut through the natural resistance of your organization and get the job done.
Storytelling Coaching For Communication
Business storytelling is not about stories; it’s about narratives. Anecdotes may be a part of it, but the core of storytelling is engaging with the audience by pushing their buttons. Only grand narratives establish strong connections with audiences. This is why storytelling is essential in communication.
Storytelling Coaching For Leadership
Leaders should clarify, inspire and persuade their peers. Great narratives are at their service to build loyalty, trust, credibility, and sales.
With your storytelling coach & trainer, you will learn how to build relationships with stakeholders, describe your mission and vision and create compelling stories that resonate with your audience.
Storytelling Coaching for Team Building
Teams are united by what makes them human. Stories are how we make sense of the world, how we identify and feel part of a group.
With your storytelling coach & trainer, you will learn how to use stories as a foundation for sharing ideas, focusing on the collective, building trust, and empowering everyone.
Storytelling Coaching for Productivity
Senseless work and pointless meetings don’t belong in healthy organizations. Short, to-the-point meetings that stir interesting debate and produce effective outcomes do.
With your storytelling coach & trainer, you will focus on what makes you and your team more productive, make sense of why you enjoy some work more than other and restructure the way you run meetings using storytelling.
Storytelling Coaching For Change Management
Change is hard. Organizations are creatures of habit. But if a change is part of a narrative, organizations can make better sense of it and even adopt it enthusiastically.
With your storytelling coach & trainer, you will be able to influence the mindset of your peers and make them eager for change.
Storytelling Coaching For Professional Speakers
Projecting confidence and speaking skillfully is just the start for professional speakers. An ironclad narrative can help them transcend and reach the hearts and minds of their audience.
With your storytelling coach & trainer, you will get your presentations to the next level and be able to deliver TED-style presentations effortlessly.

What is a storytelling coach?
A storytelling coach helps their clients in crafting narratives that engage, inspire and persuade. Their role is to guide their clients in the creation of story structures that have a strong beginning, a powerful middle, and an effective ending.
These narratives can then become presentations, emails, sales pitches, advertising materials, or even strategies.
How is Storytelling Coaching Structured?
Storytelling coaching is a hands-on, high-context support activity where the coach and the coachee collaborate in defining what a great narrative is and then engage in the process of creating one.
Storytelling coaching can happen in person or remotely, in an intensive fashion, or distributed over a longer period of time.
No pre-requisites are required. At any point in your career, you can begin your path and become a great storyteller.
Business Storytelling Theory and Examples
When you analyze stories, you start to recognize patterns. The most common pattern is the Hero’s Journey, a 17 step process that summarises the common elements of art, myth, book, and cinematic entertainment.
In my research, I’ve gone at the core of the path of the Hero/Heroine and derived my own framework to use age-old principles in business.
Apple, Tesla, Disney, and Netflix are just some of the successful companies that leverage storytelling around and even inside their products.
Sales Presentation Coaching
Over the years, I’ve used storytelling to help countless clients. Here are some of those clients.
“If you’re gearing up for your next pitch and you’re not already using Presentation Hero, you either are a genius or… you’re doing it all wrong.”
“[Presentation Hero] has already changed thoroughly the way I deliver my presentations. Guess what? I just arrived from a 3 hours presentation that made my audience fall from their chair. True story! People immediately signed up. After lunch I was confirmed to become their partner in sales development.”
“Incorporating Presentation Hero into my Public Speaking class yielded tangible results in the quality of my students’ presentations. From planning to slide creation to delivery, Presentation Hero guided students through the entire process with accessible videos and a well-founded theoretical framework.”
“In collaboration with Matteo we are able to develop presentations for our clients with a proven methodology. It gives us a firm structure through which we create better, engaging presentations. What’s more; our clients become better, more confident presenters themselves!”
