Let’s tell better stories.

I’m not a public speaking coach. I’m here to help you understand the value of your ideas.

I help take some of the world’s biggest, most challenging, complex and important ideas and transform them into high-impact stories for every kind of audience. My mission is to support people – like you – to value their ideas, craft them into compelling stories and share them to bring about change in your communities, companies and the world.

Impactful storytelling

I break down big complex ideas into small, simple ones to achieve impact. I run one of the world’s top TEDx events, have worked with hundreds of speakers who have been heard by tens of millions of people, changed the law in England and Wales and raised $1 billion to fight climate change.

I reimagine the world through stories.

The magic lies in crafting great stories, making your listener curious, and getting them to care.

I’ve worked with expert speakers and people who have never done this before. It doesn’t matter who you are, or how much experience you have – if you want to get better at public speaking and storytelling all you need are the right tools and the right support. I believe that speaking is a skill that can be learned, refined and developed.

What clients say

“Crushes it! Maryam was a total joy to work with. She ably coached 50 conservation professionals for a virtual expert series on oceans and climate that we organized. Thoughtful, effective, insightful, and disarming in her coaching. She worked very well with the production team and the event organizers and received rave reviews across the board from the speakers (myself included). Highly recommend.”

Maryam was an absolute gift to work with, making everyone from Nobel laureates to Obama Administration Cabinet members to me refine our messages and bring out our own, authentic voice—and all this using only Zoom as a tool during the pandemic. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
