“Darren LaCroix and Mark Brown, coached me live during their podcast. What I learned in just one coaching session has improved my storytelling for a lifetime! The stories I tell on stage are so much more impactful because they taught me how to let my audiences “behind the curtain” of my thinking. Thank you Darren and Mark, I’m officially one of your biggest fans!”
“We raised the most money in the history of the event. Particularly in the ask, which is the place the story had the most significant impact. I appreciate your help with the story. “
“My story was discombobulated and not very compelling… and your program was a soup to nuts solution. It opened my creative brain in so many ways and gave me a proven track to run on so I can duplicate the process of effective storytelling over and over again. I’m JAZZED!”
Don’t Sell, Just Tell a Story
What if every time you gave a presentation, made a sales pitch to a prospective client, or tried to inspire a team member, you had the power to persuade them to take action?
What if you were able not only to describe the benefits of your product or process, but also give your potential clients or buyers an immediate experience of the success or the happiness you’re promising?
You can. By harnessing the power of great storytelling.
Using the 5-Step Story Essentials Checklist™ that they developed, World Champion Speakers Darren LaCroix, CSP, AS and his coach Mark Brown, CSP will show you a proven way to grow your business and transform your audience.
What’s the Problem?
If you aren’t closing the sale or inspiring action, you’re probably not using powerful stories. Do you know what your business story is or even where to find it? Without using stories, you’re just throwing facts and figures at potential clients; and they won’t stick.
But It Gets Worse…
Maybe you already know your story, but when you start to tell it, you notice people nodding off, disengaged, or looking for an escape route. If your story is boring, that’s even worse than no story at all. Maybe you’ve gotten help with one story, but you don’t know how to recreate the process to make all of your stories more compelling and influential for your target audience. Most people think they are good storytellers but have never been trained to know the essential elements from master storytellers. Great stories build trust and make people want to do business with you. Are you missing out?
Game Changing Advice From a Mentor
“Stop trying to find that story that will launch your career, instead take the stories you already have and make them so good someone will pay to hear them.”
“Darren and Mark helped me make my signature story funnier, more poignant… Darren and Mark helped me make my signature story funnier, more poignant, and ultimately, WAY more effective. I think they’re brilliant and highly recommend their guidance and support.”
In the Better Stories, Better Business Master Workshop, you will discover how to apply the principles of great storytelling to your business presentations, web pages, and videos. Everyone loves a good story. Savvy business owners use great stories to build their businesses. You will walk away with the power and understanding to change the emotional state of audiences, clients, and followers and to move them to take action.
You’ll learn how to present your marketing story in such a way that your potential buyer, client, or subscriber identifies with the hero of that story and experiences the emotion of the story through that character. You’ll build trust so they will want to do business with you.
When you tell a story about someone whose life was improved or transformed by your product, process, or principles, your potential buyers will feel the way your hero felt. Those feelings will convince them to pay for your service or your product.

Darren LaCroix, CSP, AS, World Champion Speaker
Darren LaCroix, the 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking, outspoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to win that title. That was just a benchmark. Since that victory, Darren has traveled the world demystifying the process of creating a powerful speech. He has wowed audiences in faraway places like Saudi Arabia, China, Oman, Malaysia, and Taiwan with his inspirational journey from first-rate chump to first-class champ, proving anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.
Darren is currently the only speaker in the world who is a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), an AS (Accredited Speaker), and a World Champion of Public Speaking. Darren always stresses, “Don’t go for the designations to get letters after your name; do it for the professional you will become in the process.”
He’s also the coauthor of two books, Laugh & Get Rich and The Speaker’s Edge, and the author of the forthcoming book, Least Likely.

Would you like some extra personal coaching with your stories during the event? Sign up for one of the five VIP spots, and Mark and Darren will work your story in front of the group. As a VIP, you will receive extra guidance and personal attention and have two story experts crafting and perfecting the stories that will improve your business.
You are not coming to attend a three-day workshop; you are coming to transform the way you present for the rest of your career! Research shows that within one hour of leaving an event, people will have forgotten approximately 50% of the information that was presented to them. Within 24 hours, they will have forgotten nearly 70% of new information; and within one week, it increases to 90%. This is why we give you one full year to review the recordings as often as you’d like. Be a sponge. When you rewatch the event with your notes, you’ll get even more insight every time through!
We personally guarantee that you will be thrilled with the results of this program as long as you use the tools. The tools have been proven to work over and over again. If, after the first day, you honestly believe you have not received the tools that empower you to create an unforgettable presentation, let us know; and we’ll issue you a prompt and courteous refund.
What is a proven-process worth? What is your time worth? Working privately with a story coach could cost you thousands of dollars. This is no problem for CEOs of large corporations, but what about those of us who don’t have thousands to spend in order to improve? We want to make this education affordable. During the LIVE Master Workshop, you get two teachers with vastly different backgrounds (though both are masters of storytelling) who will give you the hands-on skills you need to take your stories to the next level. All for a price you can afford. You’ll walk out of this workshop with the first step to a better business. Darrenteed.
