How The Retellable Process Has Influenced CEOs

Led by Author, Storytelling Coach and Keynote Speaker Jay Golden 

Jay Golden works with visionary leaders who are changing the world every day through their words and their actions.

Whether the goal is a presentation to your most select stakeholders, a story of deeper purpose to meet these changing times, the speech of your life in front of 5,000 people, or a collection of stories to integrate and clarify your diverse journey, Jay works to help his clients share their ideas in a fulfilling, effective, and integrating manner. Over 12 years, Jay has coached hundreds of leaders to come into their most authentic, powerful voice.

These are not all grand stories. They sometimes start small, with an untended insights or stories that carry undiscovered meaning. But they gain power as they come to life; and not just for the listeners.

“For a story to change the world,” Jay says, “It has to change you first.”

As a speaker and trainer, Jay has traveled the world, from Amsterdam to Marrakesh to Sydney, inspiring and guiding audiences by reflecting the power of their own lived experience. His book, Retellable: How Your Essential Stories Unlock Power and Purpose, is a guide to crafting a collection of  insightful, relatable stories in life and leadership. While not seeking stories, Jay can be found navigating the rivers and mountains of Ashland, Oregon, making memories with his family.
