Doug Lipman

In 1970, Doug Lipman was an unsuccessful teacher of highly resistant adolescents with behavior-problems. One day, though, he told them a story; within moments, they stopped resisting and joined Doug in the imagined world of the story. Since then, he has used training, writing, and coaching—in many settings, industries, and countries of the world—to help people discover the engaging and transforming power of storytelling.

The author of award-winning books, Doug has coached hundreds of high-ranking executives, professionals from many fields, small business owners, and international performers—helping them communicate effectively, convey their key messages, and build rapport with their listeners.
