Stories do not merely inspire. They also disrupt the future. Some even think that they conjure up reality. They can tip the scales in the market success of products, motivation of employees and satisfaction of customers.
In this book I would like to inspire you with 50 specially selected stories behind the greatest speeches and startup pitches. These are stories of massive success, and sometimes great failure.
You will learn how:
1. One small detail caused Theodore Roosevelt’s campaign to hang in the balance
2. Elisha Otis conducted the most dramatic elevator pitch in history
3. AirBnB got funded thanks to their strategy for surviving a nuclear winter
4. Delivering a great speech resulted in threats from the FBI
5. Speeches delivered by an illiterate African-American woman won the hearts of the people
…and many other things.

I am passionate about building a culture of quality public speaking. As a business speechwriter at Keynote Advisors, I prepare executives for public appearances, conferences and corporate meetings by developing the full content of their speeches. I also develop pitch decks and prepare startups to meet investors and attend contests.
I have been proud to share my professional experience with startups accelerated at the MIT Enterprise Forum, Accelpoint, and FoodForward, as well as with aspiring leaders as part of the Women’s Leadership in Business Foundation. I am the founding member of Polish Your Polish, a Polish-language Toastmasters club in London, as well as the Chairman of the Council of Patrons of the Foundation for Great Stories. Finally, I teach storytelling at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Poland.
In addition, for over 15 years, it has been my privilege to support global companies introducing breakthrough solutions to millions of customers and thousands of employees. I have received a number of prestigious industry awards (InsurTech 2019 Award and Leader 2018 by Banking Magazine) and delivered speeches at several international conferences. I have written articles for widely-recognized business periodicals, including the Harvard Business Review. I am a graduate of London South Bank University, Warsaw University of Technology Business School (MBA) and the Leadership Academy for Poland, supported by Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
