Susan Klein has the answer. A world class storyteller in her own right, Susan leads by example. She shows us how to relay powerful narratives with no props or PowerPoint. Instead, she helps us 'see' the story, enter the room, interact with the characters in a deep and appreciative way, and revel in the moment she describes. And then she shows all of us how to tap into our authentic voices so we can deliver the same connected experience for others — in a matter of hours.

"The age of the listeners doesn’t matter, nor the setting; what matters is that the storyteller tells from the heart and reaches the hearts of the listeners so they can trust the compassion of the storyteller which leads to hope, community, and possibility. That's what gives life--and what brings excellence to storytelling."
– Steve Sanfield, poet, author, and storyteller
