Storytelling is one of the most powerful ways
to get your business message across!

If you are running a business or promoting yourself as an ‘individual brand’, your story is a strong and effective means of marketing. Telling your story can:
  • Increase brand recognition
  • Encourage followers
  • Build a loyal community
  • Maintain existing clients/customers
  • Increase visitors to your website
  • Increase sales
  • Increase clicks/downloads/sign-ups
  • Establish you as an expert in your field

Hear viewpoints from storytelling experts Dorit Sasson is a story mentor, author, speaker and creator of "Giving Voice to Your Story" website at and radio show. She helps professionals and businesses get out of their way so they can tell their most compelling story that will reposition their brands. One of the ways Dorit empowers women business owners as storytellers is by teaching the power of vulnerability and authenticity so they can engage their clients more effectively and help build trust.

“Pittsburgh is such a cool place and we wanted to do a book that would let kids and adults know all of the great places to visit, many of them free or low cost.  And then we thought the book itself could also be a visitation of beauty.”  She is now a Pittsburgher through and through residing in Pittsburgh with her husband John and her toy poodle Rosie who is very offended that Joyce has become one of Luke’s humans in "Fun Days in Pittsburgh.

Lorie Singer
has been telling stories for as long as she can remember. She's retold stories she's seen or heard, and made up stories of her own just to amuse herself. The stories have taken lots of different shapes over the years – press releases, videos, scripts, blog entries and even a recently completed novel. Lorie believes every organization, every company, every person has a story to tell. Some are better at sharing their stories than others, and that's where she comes in. She likes to find out about an organization, it's company and it's people, learn about what makes them special, and then helping figuring out the best way to tell their story.
Lorie's career has taken her from Weekend Director in small market television to Communications Specialist on a large government contract with stops along the way in Instructional Design, Graphic Support and Marketing. It's been a wonderful, if not unusual road. You can follow the latest twists and turns at
