You can have it all INSTANTLY on your desktop, phone, or tablet
How would you like to keep your audience on the edge of their seats leaning on your every word as you get paid handsomely to make them TALL (Think, Act, Laugh, and Learn)?
Guess what? You can! However, it requires you to master the most important skill in public speaking and that’s storytelling....
The good news is, once you grab hold of the right formula, you can become a master storyteller faster than you think!
But it takes so long to master storytelling, right?
Well, then let my long road led to your shortcut
Many years ago an organization in Michigan hired me to speak to a group of 300 employees. They paid me $3,500, scooped me up in a stretch limo, took me to a 5-star hotel, and wined and dined me. How did I repay them? By giving them a $150 speech.
That’s right, I failed miserably. When I finished, the woman who bragged about me and convinced the powers to hire me, would not even look me in the eyes. I have never heard from them again. However, today my rehire rate exceeds 89% and that day in Michigan is far behind me.
What Made the Difference?
Well, after many years, thousands upon thousands of dollars spent, and many severe failures, I eventually uncovered a FORMULA for creating spellbinding stories from scratch. This formula has changed my speaking destiny and can certainly do the same for you.
It could take you years and cost you a fortune (like it did for me) to figure out just the right combination that makes some stories work while others fall flat.
Or, instead of knocking yourself out trying to come up with a winning story, you can adopt my special 9-STEP FORMULA (and an additional 101 storytelling secrets) inside a brand new VIDEO PROGRAM called…
In this brand new video program featuring two World Champions of Public Speaking, you’ll receive more than…

- 6 Extra Storytelling Toolkit Interactive Handouts
The Interactive Handouts include My Story Builder, My Skeletal Story, My Story File, My Foundational Phrase File, My Character Diagram, and My Storytelling Compass)
These tools will serve you and your audiences forever. Click here to become a master storyteller.

"People came up afterwards and said I did a great job, and when I finished… the audience gave me a standing ovation. My message and stories were a good fit for the banquet. I had about 25 - 30 laughs in 20 minutes, which I am proud of since I tell stories about getting beat up in school…and having a brain tumor. Thanks for all of your help!"
Why do stories work?
Darren LaCroix said that no child being tucked into bed has ever asked, “Mom, dad, can you show me a PowerPoint?”
Instead, they want stories! Well guess what? They are you. We grew up on stories and that’s the way we make sense of life.
Can you recall any of the lessons you learned from stories when you were a child? Do you think they had an impact on your morals and maybe even your actions?
Stories rule the world and now YOU can rule the stories. When you do, a whole new world of opportunities opens for you. I bet there are stories inside of you dying to be set free. You can set them free with this Formula for storytelling success.
But wait a minute, What if I already have Craig’s original storytelling audio course?
That’s great. I hope my original course has helped you. So how is this course different? There are 5 major differences between my past course and the brand new Secrets of Storytelling Video Course.
Difference-Maker #1 – Witness the Construction
In my past audio course, you listened to my completed stories that were already polished and built. While it’s great to have those examples, there's only one problem. You never got to see where those stories were at their beginning.
I remember watching speakers and thinking, “That’s a great story. I wonder how it was when she first told it. I wonder how that story came about. How did it grow into greatness?”
SEE the Stories Under Construction
Wouldn’t it be helpful to see where a story was when it was still just an idea? And wouldn’t it be valuable to look at that story again once it was completely polished? Well, that’s what you get in this course.
But you don’t just get one story; you get 6 different stories by 6 different speakers. That’s right, in addition to the sample stories from Craig Valentine and Darren LaCroix, you get to see 6 speakers’ stories from the very beginning and then watch those stories evolve (step by step) with the tools, formulas, and the model you too can use to develop your own superb stories.
Difference-Maker #2 –
You can SEE it
Words are important in storytelling, but, make no mistake about it, storytelling is a VISUAL art. That’s another difference between my original program and this one. This time it’s on VIDEO. You can…
• SEE the spaces between the lines
• Experience what it means to really use the stage
• See how what’s NOT said often speaks louder than what IS said
• Master the character dynamic including spacing, posture, voice, tension, silence, etc.
• Perfect the often ill-pursued combination of narration and dialogue
• SEE how to use your delivery to make rather than break the story
• And much more
Remember the wisdom of Patricia Fripp who once said, “People won’t remember what you say as much as they’ll remember what they SEE when you say it.”
You can SEE more than 15 hours of video instruction in this course.
Difference-Maker #3 –
The 5 Extra Tools
In addition to the 15 hours of video training, the 103-page Storytelling Guide, and the 101 extra storytelling secrets, you get an INTERACTIVE STORYTELLING TOOLKIT that includes the following 6 story-building tools
• My Story File
• My Foundational Phrase File
• My Story Builder
• My Skeletal Story
• My Storytelling Compass
• My Character Diagram
These are the tools you absolutely need if you want to be a top-rate storyteller that commands high speaking fees. The best part about the tools is you can literally type into each PDF to develop every story you give. These tools alone could be worth much more than the price of the program.
"The Storytelling Compass is the best tool I’ve ever used in speech creation/improvement. I’ve gone through the program twice. The compass helps me tear the speech apart, reconstruct it following your format, and it is a much more powerful and audience-focused speech. The Compass alone is worth at least 50 times what I paid for the program."
With this interactive Storytelling Toolkit, you will feel like you were there with us for that special weekend when we led the course.
Difference-Maker #4 –
There Are 2 World Champions This Time
This time I am joined by World Champion Speaker, Darren LaCroix. The insights Darren has in this course are tremendous. However, Darren and I are also not alone. We are joined by speakers who have expertise in many different areas. What you learn from the combination of Darren, the active participants, and me will help you make your next story the best you’ve ever told.
Difference-Maker #5 –
You get to SEE 18 more bonus stories
That’s right. In addition to the 6 stories from the 6 speakers, you also get 18 bonus stories from Darren LaCroix, Ed Tate (2000 World Champion of Public Speaking) and me. Being able to watch these extra stories and identify the tools we used will help you naturally and automatically integrate these winning tools into your stories.
Take a look at some of the results speakers gained from Craig’s 9 Cs of Storytelling Model over the past few years and then understand that this new program is like the first one on steroids!
"Using your Storytelling home study course made the difference between getting lukewarm reviews and raving fans. That is because I can connect with an audience at a visceral level now. Thank you!"
"I have applied the 9Cs to my previous speech and it was mind blowing. The audience loved it. Thanks Craig for coming out with such useful and practical educational materials. You have made speaking so much fun."
"To be frank, it is not what I expected. It far surpasses the expectations I had! I’m completely blown away by the info… The Storytelling Compass guides you through the process of crafting your stories. It ensures nothing is left out...you’ll learn how to engage your audience, establish a connection, and send them away with a message they will not only remember, but will actually use."
"Craig, thanks. I got my home study course in the mail. EXCELLENT! I spent tons of money on materials to improve my speaking business and nothing compares to this."
"I can practically recite the whole… Storytelling programme. I have become a MUCH better speaker than I was before your programme!
And because I'm on the stage on another continent - Australia - in three weeks - you will indirectly be touching lives there as well. I owe you a debt of gratitude."
"I have your storytelling series of tapes and feel it was the most valuable information, presented in the most engaging style, and right on the mark I have ever heard. I’ve heard many speakers and storytellers - but you are the best (and I’ve been around storytellers for a long time and have served in the past on the Board for the Tejas Storytellers- so this compliment is not given lightly)."
"This was way beyond my expectations. Why didn’t I do this years ago?"
"I was able to deliver two 45+minute keynotes during a two-hour block at a local organizations seminar this morning. As I read the testimonial cards, I can't help but choke back the tears as person after person expressed their deepest thanks and personal impacts of the presentations. On top of that, I hold the FIRST check in my hand for speaking "professionally!" Your training has made it possible; thank you for helping us follow our dreams of helping people."
"Of all the books, CDs, and videos I've purchased through the years on the subject of public speaking - this course gets down to the 'how' and 'why' better than any of them. I don't like saying strong words like "Revolutionary" - but I personally haven't seen anything like this. Very impressive.Thank you."
In addition to the proven 9-Step Storytelling Model, you’ll pick up 101 extra little-known Storytelling Secrets such as…
“The more you work on a story, the shorter it should get”
“Speak like you talk, not like you write”
“You pre-actions set up your reactions”
“You need to setup your letdown”
“Turn their pain into your promise”
And at least 96 more…
Want to know a rarely-shared Secret for Mastering Storytelling?
Are you ready for this secret? It’s only two words. Plus, it’s not just about mastering storytelling; it’s about mastering anything. Here’s the secret. In order to master something quickly…
That’s right. There’s the old saying that you should “Teach that which you need to learn.”
Well, guess what? This program is perfectly set up for you to not only learn but to teach storytelling. What do I mean by that? Well, once you start to pick up the tools in this course, you’ll watch the 6 speakers go through the development of their stories (step by step) and you’ll find yourself making suggestions on how their stories can be better. Believe it or not, doing this kind of self-led coaching will automatically make you a much better storyteller!
In fact, you’ll be prompted by the workbook to make these suggestions. As a result, you’ll quickly drive these tools into your wheelhouse as you internalize them. This will help you quickly tell the kinds of stories that others sign up and line up to see.
Speaking of the Interactive Guide, let’s look at what that actually is.
What Do You Mean by the 103 Page Interactive Guide?
Years ago I had the great pleasure of sharing the stage with the late, great Charlie “Tremendous” Jones and he gave me advice regarding my audience that I will never forget. He said,
“Don’t get them to listen and memorize; get them to think and realize.”
When you travel through a comprehensive program such as the Secrets of Storytelling, you need a way to capture your notes but also your thoughts. In other words, new ideas and stories and breakthroughs will come to you on a regular basis.
We’ve provided you with an interactive PDF workbook guide where you can literally type in your notes, thoughts, and stories along with your realizations. Plus, you can do the same with the 6 additional tools in the Storytelling Toolkit. You have to capture your genius before you can share it.
"…literally within a week I had 5 paid presentations lined up… you helped me to see how important my message on Meth is for audiences to hear and instilled the belief that I can really change lives with my speaking."
