The One-Minute Story
Sometimes you have only a minute to make your point - in either a prepared speech or an impromptu statement. Analogies and metaphors presented in the form of a story leave a lasting impression.
"Though I know good storytelling when I see it, I'd never thought about the nuances and subtle details that go into making a story appealing. Thanks for the revelation."

"Susan's class was so informative and such fun that I actually forgot my fear of speaking in front of strangers. I am now able to include animation and intonation while presenting in public."
"This was a class I hoped wouldn't end. As you challenged us more and more, the bar of performance got higher and higher. Everyone was soooooo good! You taught us to learn from each other's abilities, yet we each developed our own creative flair."
"I definitely profited from Susan Frontczaks Storysmith tutelage. The techniques I learned help me in crafting a "story" for the jury, with a theme and high points. I've had numerous lawsuits and hearings at which my newfound ability to think and speak on my feet has been invaluable. Her classes taught me that I don't always have to have notes: I can relax, trust my instincts, and deeply focus on getting my story across to my audience. I feel that as a result I've become a much better, more genuine, trial lawyer and manager."
