What's your story?

What's
your
story?

Wendy Searle likes a good story and, more than anything else, loves to share a story forward. And not just any old story. They have to be true and about real people. And which help us make sense of our world.

Wendy is a freelance writer and speaker. She acknowledges the power of life stories in her columns and articles, as host of Home Truths Podcast and through hosting Conversation Club and corporate events. Wendy is also a mother, and the stories from her four sons keep her constantly on her toes.

She believes your story is your gift to the world and deserves to be heard.

Conversation Club

Wendy started Conversation Club in 2015 and, at each event, she invites two guest speakers to talk on topics we may all face in our lives. After the first guest shares the story of a challenge they have confronted, we turn to our second speaker, who has rigorous professional and academic expertise in guiding people through similar challenges, for their advice. The honesty of our guests encourages us all to be brave and honest as well, while empowering us with the knowledge that we can share our journey with others who can guide us forward, safely.

Before you go!
