Michael Williams

Storyteller, Writer, Podcaster, and StoryCoach


Hamilton, Ontario

Ever since I was a teenager, I'd always wanted to be a storyteller and writer. But my parents and teachers refused to support my dream. I headed underground and worked in a mine before an old timer urged me to return to the surface and follow my dream. That began a long, circuitous journey and many adventures that eventually saw me become a counsellor, a musician, and eventually, an academic teaching in Scotland. Then, one day, a collapse upended my life and saw me admitted to a clinic where I was treated for an addictive personality. This was the beginning of a transformation that propelled me into a new life as a storyteller, StoryCoach, and a writer. Today, I offer my experience and skills as a storyteller and writer helping people and organizations discover, create, and share their stories.
