When our UNICEF USA Board members asked about the potential to hold a UNICEF storytelling workshop, I knew just who to reach out to. After getting to experience actress Paulie Rojas' storytelling expertise firsthand a few years prior, I knew our leadership would benefit from one of her workshops. Paulie kindly and enthusiastically agreed to facilitate a storytelling workshop at the 2023 UNICEF USA Joint Boards Meeting in LA, and it was truly a transformative experience. Paulie's passion for storytelling and her genuine dedication to making a positive impact on the world were evident from the moment she stepped into the room.
Throughout the workshop, Paulie expertly guided us through the art of storytelling, sharing her wisdom and knowledge with grace and enthusiasm. From the moment the workshop began, Paulie's deep understanding of the power of storytelling as a tool for social change was evident in her words and actions. She shared her own personal experiences and anecdotes, creating a warm and inclusive environment that encouraged us to open up and explore our own storytelling abilities.
She emphasized the power of storytelling as a tool for social change, encouraging us to use our voices to shed light on important issues affecting children worldwide. Paulie navigated us through various storytelling techniques, emphasizing the importance of authenticity and empathy in our narratives. Her ability to break down complex concepts into relatable and practical exercises made the learning process enjoyable and accessible to all. As a result, the participants felt encouraged to share our own stories and perspectives. Better yet, they had Paulie's coaching to help them grow and develop their own unique storytelling style. Overall, the workshop was a transformative experience that equipped us with valuable skills and also instilled a sense of purpose and responsibility amongst our supporters.
Beyond her expertise, what truly stood out about Paulie was her genuine warmth and compassion. She cares deeply about her work and all involved in the process and takes the time to listen and provide individual guidance. Her commitment to using storytelling as a tool to advocate for children's rights was both inspiring and motivating. I left the workshop feeling inspired, empowered, and equipped with new storytelling skills that I could apply in both my personal and professional life. Paulie's workshop not only enhanced my storytelling abilities but also deepened my understanding of the power of storytelling to effect positive change.
We are immensely grateful to Paulie for her support of UNICEF's work, and for lending her talent to our organization in this way!
"I've worked with a few speaking coaches before to help in my role as CEO. Paulie was extraordinary. The best. She brings acting and storytelling tools that make an immediate and dramatic impact. I took every note, and soaked up her incredible energy. I am proud of what we did together."
"Paulie was the best coach for our event for the Boston chapter entrepreneurs organization. The speakers were committed, open, funny, vulnerable and well trained. The speakers that Paulie worked with loved her. They said how easy it was to work with her. How she was caring and thoughtful with her advice. Helpful with her knowledge of the format we set up. They said Paulie made them want to be their best. I had the pleasure of meeting Paulie at the event and I realized right way just looking at her from afar how invested she was in the process and how much she cared about each speaker. I saw it loud and clear from across the room.
We have already decided to make our event annual going forward. I am insisting on having Paulie be the coach for this event every year that she can make it.
That way I am guaranteed that this event will be the highest rated of all our events."
“Working with Paulie empowered me to be most impactful with my talks. I have just finished doing 2 keynotes in 2 weeks and more requests are coming in because of the guidance and clarity that Paulie helped me to achieve in our preparation sessions. Thank you Paulie for your wisdom, guidance, enthusiasm and impact!”
“I’ve told my story many times, but only until I worked with Paulie did my story have an opening, flow, lesson learned, and cohesive ending that tied it altogether. I got so much more confident so I could actually enjoy speaking in front of hundreds of people! Paulie is always such great energy and a true delight to work with. Cannot recommend working with her enough!”
"I worked with Paulie to coach 5 business owners in a Ted Talk style presentation, and she was absolutely amazing at her job. Paulie has the personality and skill set to make people feel good about the sometimes hard feedback needed to turn them into a polished speaker. She was flexible and a joy to work with, and the results were simply spectacular. She turned our first time speakers into the top event we've ever put on for or members, and I highly recommend her for anyone considering a speaking coach."
"It gives me great pleasure to recommend Paulie for her public-speaking skills. Through her trainings, I have become a more confident and polished speaker. I no longer race through bullet points on my powerpoint slides, stumble over what to say, and feel anxious or scared about presenting to a large public group. I learned to relax, speak clearly and have presence, whether it's in small or large meeting groups. I was recently promoted to a Senior Manager and I believe my enhanced and polished presentation skills played an important role. "
