The VoiceStory Live stage was created for YOU!

We are looking for members from our community to share their stories!

Our VoiceStory Guides have worked with many people just like you, to craft their stories and prepare them to share it on the VoiceStory Live stage, our VoiceStory onboarding process consists of the following steps:

The first step begins with our online application, after answering a few questions, you will be asked to submit a 3 minute summary video recording of your story.

Second, one of our Story Guides will review your submission and video for approval.  If your story is approved for the next stage, you’ll receive a calendar invite from a member of the VoiceStory team.

During your scheduled call we will guide you through our discovery process, helping you find elements of your story that you have discarded or long forgotten, and then we take these pieces and weave them into your story.

Next the VoiceStory Guide will guide you through our speaking process, which prepares you to speak with authenticity, confidence and clarity on the VoiceStory Live stage.

After experiencing your empowering moment speaking on the VoiceStory Live stage, you have an opportunity to acquire a professionally crafted digital media package of your live performance.

Our goal is to support you in unleashing the impact of your story.

Speaking opportunities are limited to six per show, click here to send us your application now!

Conversation and Connection Sessions

Looking for a safe space to practice talking to others?

Are you new to the community and want to meet people?

Tired of having video or Zoom calls to connect with other people?

Then come join us, this is where you want to be!

If you have thoughts and feelings of being disconnected, uncertain of what to say, what to talk about, not wanting to go alone, “this is just another networking event…” or a multitude of other reasons… please understand that we have kept all of this in mind in the creation of these social events for you.

We start each event by introducing a few key concepts on how to become a more effective communicator and practice the Art of Conversation

Next we invite you to participate in our safe, friendly, empowered space, where we will facilitate rounds of 1-on-1 conversation with like minded people, by providing a topic/question for each round of conversation.

We take care of pairing everyone up with someone new every round, so you have ample opportunity to meet new people from your community and connect with them by practicing your communication skills.

There are only 24 spots available at each social event, so do not wait and register your spot now!

Winston Yeung

I am a guide.

I guide you through your story to reveal a moment of realization.

I hear what you say and also what you don’t say, the unspoken words that rob your story of context, creating an emotional disconnect that is felt before your story is heard.

I see past the stories that people naturally share and guide them to where the real story is, that part of themselves they need to reveal but are not sure of the way.

The lessons and tests I experienced along my journey are where my insight, empathy, compassion and understanding are forged.

I founded VoiceStory, a non-profit organization that is creating social connection, facilitating personal healing and promoting community building. This is done through the speaking platform – VoiceStory Live, educational workshops, mastermind, mentorship and coaching to develop an individual’s ability to embrace and share their unique stories with the intention to impact another.

How do I contact Winston as I would like to connect with him?

You can email Winston with any questions, comments or feedback at winston@voicestory.ca you can also book a meeting by clicking here.

Being in Management and Engagement for over 20 years I’ve seen a lot of trends.

Often having what some feel are difficult conversations, because I’ve invested my energy and time and nurtured those relationships, those conversations become just that- conversations. The ability to hear people where they are at and use “relatability” is a power that I have. It has also come in very powerfully when “rallying” teams or accomplishing challenging goals. As people can truly move mountains, when they want to.


Nadeem Ahmad

Going from circumstantial to substantial, my personal development journey is something from a big screen production script. Growing up in a middle class immigrant family my transition from the ‘good kid’ to ‘scapegoat’ happened all too quickly.

At the age of 18 several revelations unfolded in my family dynamic, shattering my understanding of trust, family, love & relationships. The aftermath of these events was a radical downward spiral into drugs, demons & rabbit holes – a dysfunctional mindset that constantly forced me to back into a dark place.

With the help of mentors & friends, I was empowered with the understanding of awareness; I was educated on how to leverage me, against me to make myself a better person.

How I bounced back from the mental, spiritual & emotional deficits is the foundation behind my unique style towards constructing a strong, solid mindset. My point blank approach to developing mindsets is as ruthless as it is compassionate.
