TAKE YOUR STORYTELLING TO A NEW LEVEL
Hello. My name is Ira Koretsky (bio). I am the founder and CEO of The Chief Storyteller® and I have been in the world of storytelling since I was in high school debate. Three years after starting forensics (that’s what it was called back then), I was a New York State debate champion finalist. There were just 26 of us from the entire state. A life-long foundational lesson came from our debate coach and our storytelling coach, Mr. Height. He stressed… and made us appreciate… the power of effective stories and appreciate the power of effective delivery. They went hand-in-hand. Lessons from Mr. Height, along with countless others over my career, along with plenty of bumps and bruises earned on my own, have made me a much better storyteller and a much better communicator. And for you, a better storytelling coach.
Some 30 years later, I have been coaching, mentoring, training, teaching, and consulting on business storytelling in 14 countries (testimonials, customers, success stories). From my days speaking publicly on behalf of the US Army as a healthcare IT Public Affairs Officer and Chief Information Officer, to consulting on billion dollar technology programs to the Federal government, to being in leadership roles in marketing and product management, to teaching eager sophomores at the University of Maryland Business School, to performing improvisational comedy for 10 years with ComedySportz, to present day, I have been a business storyteller at heart and storytelling coach in practice.

I designed the Storytelling Coach Learning Modules for trainers, speakers, and professionals alike. The modules help you become the type of storyteller you want to be. AND become the type of storyteller audiences want to hear.
