Senior Financial CEO: "I met Dianne via LinkedIn and attended one of her GENIUS Business Storytelling Workshops. As a result, I asked Dianne to be a keynote presenter at the August 2020 Financial Executives Networking Group, Charlotte Chapter's virtual meeting. In one hour, Dianne captivated The FENG members on the Zoom meeting.
Her subject matter expertise on the effectiveness of communicating via well structured storytelling is a message that all effective leaders need to hear and learn. I highly recommend to anyone to engage Dianne as a keynote speaker/presenter."
Marketing Company CEO: "I attended one of Dianne's storytelling workshops recently. This is an integral part of shaping and sharing any business or personal brand and I learned a lot from it.
Dianne is a very effective, poised communicator. Her workshop digs deep. She makes you really think about what "story" we are putting out there in the world. I highly recommend her GENIUS Storytelling workshop to any businessperson looking to hone in on their personal and brand message and how they are presenting it to others. Time well spent!"
Motivational Speaker and Coach: "I attended Dianne’s GENIUS Business Storytelling workshop with great anticipation. In my case, I was a little more interested in the ‘why’ behind what I consider a natural talent of mine because I was preparing for a major speech competition. So, though it seemed to be for personal reasons, speaking is my business. Winning the speech competition will increase my business and reputation. After being guided through the exercises Dianne instructs, and getting her instant feedback, I added empathy and a purpose to my speech that made it more clear even to ME. When you’re clear about your message and the desired outcome, you become more of an asset to your clients, and the many people you touch. Your business stories then help you achieve your goals. I recommend you let Dianne help you learn how to successfully tell yours."
Banking Executive: "It was my good fortune to participate in a GENIUS Story telling Seminar, led by Dianne Chase.
In 41 years in banking, all the charts, tables, graphs, mantras, slogans and numbers had never been a catalyst to true motivation and connection for the people who led me. Or the people I led. The Genius Story Telling model would have been a "game changer", for both.
The session concepts, program, model, methodology and materials are easy to grasp and they resonate with how one can best deliver a message in ways unlike the "traditional". Ms. Chase has a strong grasp of the material, an engaging delivery style, optimal balanced feedback and coaching skills and she wasted no time while adding significant value. The program is now in my delivery model and style. I am grateful for it."
Public Affairs Executive: "In her program on Genius Business Storytelling, Dianne Chase masterfully demonstrates why a carefully crafted story is essential to winning people over to a product, service, company value, or cause. Then she shows you HOW to craft your personal story with words and phrases that inform, inspire, and motivate. Lessons learned from the highly interactive workshop will be invaluable for anyone looking to make their message break through the 21st century communications clutter."
Banking Executive: "Dianne is a dynamic, creative communications and PR professional who creates and delivers great products and services in an innovative way and gets excellent business results. She understands the business case for her services and adds value to any communications, PR, coaching project with her depth and breath of experience.
Dianne developed, managed and dellivered some very complex training modules for a group at Bank of America that required diplomacy, ingenuity and creativity. I would recommend her for any communications project that requires expert end to end managment from conception and design to execution to tracking business impacts. She is the consumate communications professional and works with great gusto. She also brings a sense of humor, style and fun to every project.
It was my great pleasure to work with her and I would hire her again in a New York minute."
Business Analyst Executive: "I had the opportunity to attend an eye-opening workshop – Genius Business Storytelling - presented by award-winning communication expert Dianne Chase.
I was familiar with the importance of storytelling from a brand perspective. It is how companies communicate who they are to the world. However, Dianne introduced us to another and equally important component of business storytelling: Personal storytelling – a compelling vehicle for creating trust and understanding with existing and potential clients, as well as nurturing employees and building a strong company culture.
In this very interactive workshop we learned, through memorable real-life examples, that we experience long term engagement via personal stories because so many parts of the brain are stimulated. As a result, people will recall the facts of our message 20 times more effectively when they are part of a story.
We then learned the components that go into creating a personal story and, with Dianne’s guidance, how to create our own personal stories to deliver a business message.
If you are looking to have your business message resonate with your clients and align your employees with the values and culture of your company, this is the workshop you need to attend."
