The Story Source is a consulting company run by Andrew Linderman that helps businesses, non-profits and creative professionals develop and share their stories more effectively.
Great structure, loved the content. I think it needs to be 3 hours as you cover a lot of content and excercises in a short time. Andrew also offers free consultation (15 min) after the class to get a personal touch which is a great benefit.
Andrew was great. The class was really helpful, a lot of information to try out but a really great start to getting comfortable with pitching and gave the tools to prepare and practice outside of class.
Good balance of theory and practice. Highly recommend.
The class was extremely informative and helpful. The lecture was well planned and Andrew was a delightful presenter. I would highly recommend the class.
Andrew created a supportive, friendly, and constructive environment while approaching the topic in a way that I haven't seen before. The session focused on fundamentals, which means that the material that's covered can also be applied in meetings and other settings. Well worth it!
This class was great! Andrew was extremely helpful - sharing insights, thoughts he has developed about the interview process, sharing personal stories, and answering my many questions. I feel the framework he shares will help me tremendously to prepare my next interviews. The class alternates between explanations and tips to help prepare interviews and act during interviews, and practice exercices. I definitely strongly recommend it!
Our Instructor was great! The class was a bit different than I expected (in a good way!). For some reason I thought we would have to prepare a speech and then present it to the whole class, but there were a lot of interactive exercises. The class ran a little long, but I could tell that the Instructor didn't mind, you can really tell that he cares about teaching people and that he just wants people to improve. I'm looking forward to taking more of his classes and can't wait to practice what I learned in his class.
I felt as if the instructor didn't fully take into consideration how uncomfortable some of us might have been being in this setting/how difficult public speaking is for us even in this small setting, and some of his remarks came off a little abrupt and harsh. I came in with a very open mind but left feeling discouraged. I felt as if the course focused a lot on body and posture and maybe not enough on specific skills and practice.
Andrew is an engaging presented who really helps the class understand the basic, yet oft-overlooked elements of storytelling. This class was super helpful for crafting a pitch, but I also still think about the takeaways in my day-to-day life. Highly recommend for anyone looking to become a more effective communicator.
Andrew's class is a great introductory class for anyone who has anxiety with public speaking. He addressed some of the root physical reactions we all have and taught us how to channel them in a positive way. And he doesn't just teach about public speaking, he has you practice it right then and there. The tools I learned have really helped in my speaking engagements and I will always use them. If you want to get over your anxiety in public speaking, this class is a fantastic first step!
