The Good Listening To Show: Stories of Distinction & Genius

Chris Grimes - Facilitator. Coach. Motivational Comedian

The Storytelling Show in which I invite movers, makers, shakers, mavericks, influencers and also personal heroes into a 'Clearing' (or 'serious happy place') of my Guest's choosing, to all share with us their stories of 'Distinction & Genius'. Think "Desert Island Discs" but in a 'Clearing' and with Stories rather than Music. Cutting through the noise of other podcasts, this is the storytelling show from "MojoCoach", Facilitator & Motivational Comedian Chris Grimes. With some lovely Storytelling metaphors to  enjoy along the way: A Clearing, a Tree, a lovely juicy Storytelling exercise called "5-4-3-2-1", some Alchemy, some Gold, a couple of random Squirrels, a cheeky bit of Shakespeare, a Golden Baton and a Cake! So it's all to play for! "Being in 'The Good listening To Show' is like having a 'Day Spa' for your Brain!" So - let's cut through the noise and get listening!
