Barbara Seymour Giordano
Story Doctor, Speechwriter, Presentation Coach & Speaker 

As a Communications Strategist specializing in speechwriting, storytelling and presentation skills I've advised Fortune 500 executives, entrepreneurs, scientists and TED presenters on how to create global talks that unite, influence and inspire audiences worldwide. 

During my career, I've worked as an assignment editor with CNN and E! Entertainment Television as well as produced internal videos, global sales meetings and events for Amgen, Cisco Systems, and Nike to name a few. In front of the lens I've been an on-camera national TV fashion and beauty spokesperson for Lands’ End, Neiman Marcus, and TJX Corp. 

By turning highly complex subjects into moving stories that spark imagination across cultures I help presenters weave in emotional storytelling touch points that inspire audiences to action.

Storyteller, speechwriter, spokesperson, director and public speaker - a 360 communication background that allows me to offer an intensely unique and fun approach to sharing your story.

Pamela makes all of my events better -- why not yours?
