Top tips to telling a good tale

  1. Breathe – Take your time, get your words right. Remember the pauses in your head never feel as long to your listeners.
  2. Relax – You’re among friends. You couldn’t ask for a more engaged, enthusiastic and supportive audience. They want you to be awesome.
  3. Be Real – Don’t lie, exxagerate or embellish (too much). Truth is stranger, and almost always better than fiction. Sometimes.
  4. Trust Yourself – Nobody knows or can tell your story better than you. Intuition and instinct are your friends.
  5. Remember – We’re here to have fun! So just go for it.
