Description

Today's Story Teller is Michelle Nicholson

of 'Key Changes – Unlocking Women’s Potential'

Story Title: Without a Voice

Michelle was a young single mother determined to get on the employment ladder and become a beauty therapist in 1993. Her aspiration would have been fulfilled if she hadn’t met a man 13 years older than her, who invaded her life over a period of 6 weeks. Her story outlines a miscarriage of justice, which she is still fighting to clear her name. This is now more possible following the release of her book, “Without a Voice” in April 2017. Michelle campaigns for change and has set up the charity, ‘Key Changes – Unlocking Women’s Potential’, following her insights into the way women are treated in the criminal justice system.

Michelle holds a Bachelor of Science with Honours for Social Science with Psychology. She is a campaigner and influencer of change and is creating a media platform for women in the criminal justice system. She would like to use her story in a powerful way to create change.

The Question I have for the Telling Stories Group

How can I frame my story so that people understand and respond to it constructively?


Are you a coach, consultant or freelance, who wants to promote their business and take their practice to a new place?

Do you love stories and long to find your own story that gives voice to your business?

Great stories are true because they have integrity, they make a promise (that must be met), they are subtle and yet make a rapid first impression, they appeal to our senses and match a particular worldview.

So, finding a story that will promote your business is not easy. But it can be easier if you share your search with a dynamic group of business-owners.

This self-help group will listen to and provide feedback for business stories and help each other market their business through stories.

Join us at the Village Grill on 2nd and 4th Thursdays to find out:

  • How to tell your story in a fresh and compelling way
  • How to use your story to market your business and become better known
  • How to adapt your story in new and innovative ways.

We will do more than tell stories. We'll share ideas about how to tell stories so they are really effective. Each month, one member of the group shares their story and together we listen, take note and work out how the story can be improved. Everyone learns from this experience and improves their story telling. We cover a range of business applications and media for telling your stories.

A fee of £10 on the door shall cover a meal from the Village Grill's lunchtime menu. This includes burgers, wraps, etc and there are vegetarian options.
