WordsHolley Murchison

We’ve all been there. Whether it’s an interview or a pitch, a client meeting or a casual coffee, we’ve all heard those four little words – tell me about yourself.

It’s a short question, but it can be a very daunting one. Where to start? What to focus on? What to leave out? Enter Holley Murchison. She’s an American social entrepreneur who's thrown herself into helping people from all walks of life answer this question. And, to date, through her courses and her book, 6,000 people have learned how to introduce themselves more effectively.

Now, for the first time, Holley has teamed up with WePresent to turn Tell Me About Yourself into a free online experience. She covers how to read your audience, what to focus on and why you need a compelling story in the first place.

To take part in the course along with Holley, you need the free PDF storyboard. This will be referred to throughout and will help you work through the six steps. Download now and you'll be good to go!

One more thing – to do this properly takes about 25-30 minutes. So if you're having one of those days, best to carve out some time where you can really focus on this!
