Dr Thomas Rose

Storytelling in Business


As a Toastmaster you know about the power and magic of storytelling. Your audience is way more charmed by a good tale than by a factual report. Many people, however, feel that they don't have a story to tell. Fact is: They have. They are just too close to their own stories to easily recognise them.


Let's dive deep and let's find the story of "you". Furthermore, let's talk about the tools that you need in order to help your customers, clients and co-workers to find their story.

Let's gather around the campfire!

Abstract to follow, in the meantime why not  read up about our special visitor?

Teresa Dukes, DTM, of Ipswich, Suffolk, United Kingdom, is a speaker, trainer and coach at Dukes Consultancy, a company she founded in May 2009. Certified as a World Class Speech Coach, she helps individuals achieve their personal objectives and reach their full potential. Her clients include CEOs, apprentices, high school students and small- to mediumsize enterprises. Dukes also works as an associate trainer for Speakers Trust, a charitable public speaking organization that specializes in training and educating the not-for-profit and community sectors.

While studying at Kings College in Charlotte, North Carolina, Dukes earned a diploma in secretarial science. She continued her education to study marketing, geographical analysis and project management. She worked as a corporate director before becoming an entrepreneur.

A Toastmaster for 16 years, Dukes has been a member of her home club, Speak Easy at Martlesham in Martlesham, England, since 2004. She has held a number of high-profile leadership positions within Toastmasters and has attained the Distinguished Toastmaster designation—the highest level of achievement in the organization.

Dukes says, “Toastmasters means courage, opportunity and challenge: the courage to share ideas where they are heard, the opportunity to develop skills at your own pace, and the challenge to help others grow.” “Together,” she says, “Toastmasters not only grow personally and professionally, but are ready and able to grow their communities and businesses as well.”

As a member of the Toastmasters International Board of Directors, Dukes is a “working ambassador” for the organization. She works with the Board to develop, support and modify the policies and procedures that guide Toastmasters International in fulfilling its mission.
