Johanna Walker is a public speaking coach and storytelling expert who helps entrepreneurs and leaders craft talks and presentations around stories that matter, but that’s not the career she planned on. For years, she worked as a multi-disciplinary artist, eventually finding her way to the stage. Her body of on-stage work spans over 20 years - including performing at poetry slams, creating solo theater pieces. Eventually she began helping others find their voices. She’s worked with adolescent girls, incarcerated women, senior adults, corporate CEOs, fledgling entrepreneurs, TEDx speakers and passionate change-makers. In this episode we talk about how opening her speaker coaching business at 49 forced her to grow in ways she couldn’t have imagined.
