This live 1-Hour virtual workshop will teach you how to...

  • Instantly engage an audience’s attention

This one-hour workshop - hosted and taught by storytelling champion, bestselling author, award winning and elementary school teacher Matthew Dicks - is guaranteed to help you create stronger and more powerful stories.


These are the very same strategies I coach storytellers to use in their personal and professional lives. These are the same strategies I iuse when developing a marketing campaign for a company, constructing a pitch deck for an entrepreneur, or helping someone prepare to tell a story at their child’s eighteenth birthday.

Storytelling, is storytelling, is storytelling...

By watching and learning about the decisions that storytellers make while crafting and telling a story, you, too, can become a championship-level storyteller wherever and wherever you’re telling a story.

Despite the tragic circumstances, the story unfolds with a mix of humor and sincerity, highlighting the resilience and support of friends during a challenging time.


Hi, I’m Matthew Dicks

As an elementary school teacher for 24 years, I could have never imagined someday I would be an internationally bestselling author of 8 books and decorated public speaker (winning over 50 Moth StorySLAM competitions and a record 9 GrandSLAM championships).

Now, many years later, I work with businesses of every size to help them use stories to increase sales, build marketing presentations, deploy advertising campaigns, and develop positive corporate culture.


My obsession with stories, drive to entertain and captivate an audience and impart the most important lessons about storytelling to help others makes me the perfect person to teach you how to use stories to grow your business.
