Hear it from previous participants of Anna's Storytelling Courses
"Anna is a gifted storytelling coach. She has the exceptional ability to simplify the complex and draw one out of their comfort zone. I took the program as I wanted to gain confidence in public speaking, I have noticed improvements in a short amount of time. Never did I imagine myself telling a story on stage let alone look forward to with excitement. The program was loads of fun, I will be joining again."
"Seed to Stage” is an excellent basic course for aspiring storyteller who wishes to reach out to their audiences on a soul-to-soul level, I enjoy thoroughly at each session. The lessons were easy to understand and Anna was kind enough to coax the story out of us. "
"The class is awesome in helping me develop, pivot, and make my story punchier. Great tips for stage presentations!"
"I have always loved listening to and telling stories. The storytelling workshop conducted by Anna Ong truly played on my interest and skill. During the Covid-19 lockdown, I decided to hone my skills and also learn something new. This virtual workshop was just what I needed!
Anna is a dedicated coach. She invested her time and energy in each and every one of us. Our stories evolved wonderfully over the course of 4 weeks, culminating into a successful showcase.
Thank you, Anna! You are amazing."
"Anna is a great coach. I was inspired by her personal stories and storytelling style. Her comments helped me shape my story into a fun, short and lively personal narrative to share in a live show. She is also an amazing entertainer, making the audience feel part of the show from the moment they join."
"Anna creates a very comfortable and safe environment for her storytelling classes. She puts in a lot of thought to craft a lesson that is both interesting and relevant to people looking to apply storytelling to their work. Despite the varying level and background of the participants, she is able to work off everyone's dynamics and adapt the class so that everyone gets a lot out of it. Most of all, it was very enjoyable and Anna is never without a smile or good humour. I recommend this class for anyone who'd like to develop their narratives, especially in a corporate environment as Anna's extensive work and life experiences and her intuitive teaching will help you put form to your stories."
"Anna is a magic worker. I’ve never stood in front of an audience to share a story before. Anna went out of her way to make sure it’ll be successful and that it’s comfortable for me. She helped me by choosing a good story, by sharing the best method in story-telling 101 and by coaching me to curate a beautiful and impactful story."
