Today's Story Teller is Sue Coult

Focus and Move; Wellness Coach

Story Title: Please, Make Me Better!

Sue failed her A-levels but wanted to work in the travel industry. She started working at Sheffield Midland Station in the ticket office. This was the days before the Internet and so there were always long queues for tickets. Things were especially fraught on Fridays, when they opened two extra windows!

Later Sue trained as a physiotherapist and her people skills came into play as she coaxed people traumatised by injury to work with her to recover their ability to move. She worked at various hospitals in Sheffield and Rotherham for about 25 years.

These days Sue is self-employed, assisting people with movement, massage and essential oils. She has tiny bottles of oil with her at all times, primed to assist with many ailments!

The Question Sue has for the Telling Stories Group

How can I make this story of my life more focused? What are the developing themes?


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 The Rude Shipyard 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 do more than tell stories. We 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 £5 on the door covers my overheads including the story-teller's lunch. Please be prepared to purchase lunch at The Rude Shipyard. Please inform me in advance if you require disabled access.
