Interested in One-on-One Storytelling Coaching?

Working on an especially important story? Whether you need help finding the narrative through line or just want to gain confidence in sharing your story, Ex Fabula storytelling coaches can help you reach your goals through private, one-on-one storytelling coaching.

The basic coaching package includes:

  • a conversation to identify your goals for coaching
  • us matching you with a suitable storytelling coach.
  • a pre-session phone call with the coach to go over your goals for the session
  • a one-hour in person coaching session at a mutually agreeable location in the City of Milwaukee (could be a coffee shop, library, office, private residence, etc); coaches can travel for additional cost.
  • a follow up phone call where the coach can hear your story after you’ve had time to reflect on it.
