"Move forward. Step back and recalibrate. Move forward again." This is how Doug Stevenson, CEO of Story Theater International, has built a successful life and career as a storyteller, keynote speaker, trainer, and coach.

Doug is a masterful storyteller, but his true gift is helping people become engaging storytellers and unforgettable leaders. He is the author of Doug Stevenson’s Story Theater Method, and has delivered storytelling keynotes and workshops for leadership, sales, training, marketing, and HR teams in the US and in 17 other countries.

In this episode, Doug shares:

  • How his background as an actor and real estate agent led him to his passion for public speaking and storytelling
  • The stories in his own life that have led him to “move forward, step back and recalibrate, move forward again”
  • The power of finding and sharing the meaningful moments in life, no matter how small
  • How he teaches corporate leaders to tell stories that improve their performance and communications
  • How the pandemic forced him to slow down and shift his approach to coaching, public speaking, and life in general
