“Nearly a year ago as I lay in a semi-coma at North Shore Hospital my family were being told to start planning my funeral. The medical record said ‘Rob is expected to pass away soon,' but now, fully recovered and thanking God for a new liver, I am raring to go with some fresh material for communicators.” Rob Harley
When we visited Rob in hospital he had a life expectancy of 15 minutes if they took him off the ventilator. Now miraculously back from the brink, he is ready to do what he does best – tell stories.
We all want our story to be heard but most of us are just not that skilled at telling it well. Do you want to reach a particular audience or just pass on your story to the next generation? Rob Harley is one of NZ's best, most empathetic story tellers and he is running a one day seminar to help people tell their stories in a more engaging way.
It has been said that many of us are writing our autobiographies, often one day at a time, usually on Facebook. If you want to step up a level and make your story permanent, then this workshop is a great place to start. Let Rob help you to tell your story well. In future issues of BEACON we will be looking at the practical how to’s of recording your story, especially for seniors, but first you want to make it interesting for your audience.
Having been to one of Rob’s workshops previously, we highly recommend it for anyone who has to communicate effectively in business, social circles or for family history.
