Telling Resources

It is the magic Storytellers, Entertainers, Teachers, Preachers, Sages and Speakers use to connect to their audiences. Story Magic can take us away from the "here and now" where we are limited by ourselves and conditions.

A straightforward listing of facts is rarely interesting to people. The magic of story engages a listener's mind and heart in those very same facts. The listener to a story becomes spellbound. Stories makes facts make sense.

James will use the power of Story Magic to engage your audience as they are invited to absorb, understand and, most importantly, to really care!

Bring the compelling eloquence of JamesStoryMagic to your next event.

I can't thank you enough ... Your message was relevant and enjoyed by all in attendance. As you know, Service Excellance is a very important concept to all of us here. I think you inflamed the imaginations of the new employees who saw you perform and "gently teach" concepts that are at the very heart of who we are as an organization.
