My sincere thank you to those of you who were able to attend "The Power of Stories to Enhance Learning" at the American Society for Training Development's International Conference & Exposition in Washington DC May 23 - 27, 2004. It was a privilege to work with you on building stories into your programs and presentations. The tremendous interest for the power of stories is very exciting. And your enthusiasm and warm comments are very gratifying!

What participants are saying:

  • "Fabulous session"
  • "I am inspired to use more stories in my programs and now have more confidence to do that. Thank you!"
  • "Your presentation was lively, energetic and participative. We all benefited from your obvious enthusiasm for this topic."
  • "You sang for us - that was brave, but don't quit your day job." (This is one of my favorite comments :>)
  • "Come visit us and bring your stories with you." (From an international attendee)
  • "You created a warm, inviting atmosphere for us to explore our use of stories."

At the conference, we sold out of the book, "Stories Trainers Tell" but anyone who wishes to purchase a signed copy and was not able to at the conference can do so through me for the conference price of $54.95. I will also include shipping at no charge. Just email me with your request ( and I will send you a book and invoice. (And I promise not to add you to any product or marketing list as a result of contacting me. I have great respect for honoring connections with my colleagues).
