My name is Debbie Williams, I have been a member of toastmasters since May 2017 and I enjoy the art of storytelling. The podcast came about due in part by others requesting that I start one, and the fact that my daughter bought me a microphone for my birthday in May 2020. I mean, it was lock-down, what else was I going to do!
Stories have always been a way to communicate, and parables have always been used to help us understand real life. Before people learned how to write, they would tell each other stories, those stories were our history books. Sometimes we may underestimate the power we have with our speaking voice. We all have a story that somebody else wants to hear. We all have it within us to inform, educate, and inspire others.
I’m known to frequent the gym, go for runs, swim, cycle and I’ve completed 12 spartan races to date. I’m also known for my banana cake and the fact that I’m not so great at making other flavours!
