A Hollywood actor-director once said: “It’s possible for me to make a bad movie out of a good script, but I can’t make a good movie from a bad script.”
Mind you, it was George Clooney.
For presentation or spoken word
If you have an important message to impart – a presentation, an address, or strategy change speech – my words can help season your facts and figures to create a story more powerful and enduring than clogged slides. I will help you get to the essence of your message and the reason why you think it’s worth telling, and enable you to impart it in a style that matches who you are.
In a nutshell, I’ll help you create a performance-based story with a plausible plot (I mean, how happy do happy endings have to be?), a human hero – sleek protagonists are so not in vogue – and, at times, an open-ended narrative to let your employees or audience continue writing their own story.
If your company is going through a phase of changes or challenges, I can create a human and humorous script that deals sensitively with any issues that block communication or growth. I’ll take on the elephant in the room, bring him down to size, and prompt the audience to do some shoe-shifting – putting themselves in other stakeholders’ shoes.
I can either perform the story myself, or find a suitable storyteller within my network.
For printed copy such as feature articles or case studies, I’ll run and share ideas with you. I’ll look for the right tone and voice, and express it in clear English geared towards the target audience you want to reach.
I can conduct interviews in either English or Dutch.
