Workshops & Trainings
"Impressive and inspiring."
Everyone has a different challenge (and opportunity) when it comes to storytelling.
Thus, I strive to customize each workshop & corporate training to exactly fit your audience and their unique needs. The range of business contexts for which story can be leveraged is vast -- so here you'll find a "Story Training Menu" to help you start to imagine the possibilities for your next Company Retreat or Professional Dev day.

"Definitely an eye-opener."
"I felt connected and invested."
"I did not imagine I'd get so much out of it."
"Jessica is one to watch. But more than that, she’s one to hire -- now! I assumed I would enjoy her workshop, but did not imagine I’d get so much out of it. I have some work to do… and after seeing Jessica in action, I feel inspired to do it. She’s engaging, insightful, and real. Her greatest skill as a storyteller: her ability to listen. My only frustration: I wanted more time. My only question: why are you reading this instead of contacting her? "
