Season 2. Episode 3. Authentic Storytelling with Christoph Trappe

story book


This week I am covering one of my favourite subjects, Storytelling.

I do love a good story, Don’t you? I think most of us have a natural inclination to listen to good stories and they can be a very powerful tool in your content marketing kit.

To introduce the subject I thought it would be appropriate to interview an expert on the subject.

Christoph Trappe is a career storyteller who has worked as a journalist, a nonprofit executive, and a content marketing strategist and consultant.

Christoph’s Blog




  • Authenticity is key although true stories will often change with time and this is okay. The basis of the story should always be true.
  • Conflict makes stories more interesting.
  • Story shopping. The idea that you should always be on the lookout for good stories.
  • The best way to start storytelling is to start NOW! Why not try relaying a story in your next LinkedIn publish post?

It can be difficult to get noticed in iTunes and one thing that can really make a difference is reviews. If you enjoy the show please take a minute to write an honest review in iTunes, it would be most appreciated.

If you are not sure how to write an iTunes review I have made a short video demonstrating how this is done.
