When you need a little help telling the story


StoryMakers Center for Advocacy, Awareness & Change (SMC) is a communications and messaging firm that represents nonprofits, faith communities socially-driven private companies & entrepreneurs.

StoryMakers provides training and workshops on leadership, communication, team building and inclusion through storytelling and messaging. Through working with the StoryMakers Center, businesses are able to turn business and life experiences into profitable brand stories that build influence and thought leadership. Our mission is to help organizations craft narratives and storylines to communicate the value of the transformation they provide.


Selling products or services is not enough. You need a narrative to make people care. You are here because you have a problem. Hard as you try, you haven’t been able to articulate your message, tell the story on what makes you different or how you make an impact.

You need to connect your product or services to the reason behind why you do it, and more importantly, you have to give your clients or customers a reason why they should pick you rather than someone else. Without this connection, you’re just like everyone else and the race to the bottom is swift and cheap. Storytelling makes price irrelevant because when you can make an emotional connection with your audience, their perceived value around waht you do rises.

I help you uncover the one thing your competition doesn’t have– your story.  And then, I help you market it.
