Tom Ware - Teller of Tales

Updated on March 19, 2013

Story captures the imagination.

Here we can see the author out front of a group telling a story.

In speaking, nothing entertains more than story well told

Tom Ware is a master storyteller Tom has been captivating audiences with his storytelling skills for the better part of thirty years. Even so, outside of certain types of audiences, mostly retirees that are people of his own age group, the demand for real storytelling is just about redundant. There are, of course, many business and government organizations that purport to promote story. But in actuality they are more for making a point with something which is not much better than a comedian’s one-liner. They’re self-promotional for profit, and it generally shows. They do not tell real stories, stories that move people, yarns that make people want to laugh or cry.

Tom can do this. Indeed, it has been more than once that he has had to desist and take stock because of people breaking down in sorrow as they’re reminded in yarns of something poignant in their own lives.


The power is in the listener's imagination - the speaker just the catalyst.

Be a Tale Teller. Use story.

More, learn from a master storyteller like Tom Ware.

Nothing is stronger for not only making a point but making it in such a way that it changes behavior. The great prophets of old, such as Zoroaster, Buddha, Jesus and lesser teachers of bygone ages, knew that a tale well told will be retained in that person’s heart probably for life. That’s because a story seed is planted. A seed that does not die. An idea, envisaged in a story remains. Information alone, dot-points on visuals, appeals to contrasting data –they make their point. They might even remain at the forefront of one’s thinking for a day or so, especially if that data is worrisome. But storytelling is something again. It stays.

So, if you want to be able to not only hold an audience, but to leave a lasting message in their minds, learn from a master of story. Learn from someone who has a proven track record. Learn from one who can weave a yarn, tell a tale. Learn from a master storyteller – our own Tom Ware.
