Insa Kunkel is a former professional writer with over 20 years of experience in the media industry. She has created content for several high-profile brands and business owners, including eBay and PayPal. In 2017, she decided to pivot her career and follow a new passion – helping entrepreneurs learn how to share their stories on stage through her personal speaker training programs.
In this Client Case Study episode, Insa shares how she discovered her new passion for helping others share their story through presentations and public speaking engagements.
