INSPIRING AUDIENCES FOR 25 YEARS
Ira Koretsky, CEO of The Chief Storyteller®, has been in the world of public speaking and business storytelling since 1981, when he was a New York State high school debate champion. His debate coach, Mr. Height, helped his teammates and him understand the power of effective communication and understand the power of effective delivery–they went hand-in-hand.
Some 30 years later, NOTHING has fundamentally changed.
To be successful, we will always need effective communication… between people.
Ira has been coaching, mentoring, training, teaching, and consulting on communication, public speaking, and storytelling in more than a dozen countries (testimonials, customers, success stories, video clips). He performed improvisational comedy with ComedySportz San Jose and ComedySportz DC for over 10 years. Also, he teaches public speaking, storytelling, data storytelling, and communication at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business to about 70 eager honors students each year. Their final is a five-minute TED-style Talk on a topic of the student’s choosing.
Ira customizes your keynote. He customizes your content, exercises, action items, tools, etc. to match your culture and learning objectives.
