Tea Silvestre

Presentations, Keynotes and Workshops

As founder of Story Bistro — an internationally-known company that’s helped hundreds of solopreneurs learn to love marketing by focusing on relationships and stories — Tea Silvestre brings a whole new level of enthusiasm to the process of launching a business.

She’s earned a solid reputation as a mentor coach + trusted advisor + experiential event producer, and now the secret is out: she’s also a gifted speaker with a talent for infusing traditional topics with right-brained, creative approaches that inspire confidence and joy in entrepreneurs who’ve never felt at home promoting themselves or their businesses.

CScoverNew5Her first book, Attract and Feed a Hungry Crowd: How Thinking Like a Chef Can Help You Build a Solid Business, has helped thousands of solo biz owners get their arms around non-recipe thinking.

Tea’s available for interviews, speaking engagements + customized workshops and is equally comfortable as an opening or closing keynote, emcee, or facilitating an afternoon workshop or retreat.

Based Portland, Oregon, she’s no stranger to the airport!

I invited Tea to join a telesummit that I’d created just for entrepreneurs. I selected her because of her unique message on marketing — it wasn’t the “same ole'” BS that we so frequently hear as business owners, and I wanted her unique perspective. Not only is Tea a true professional to work with, but she really gave her best in the telesummit and we got a kick ass response, in part due to her contribution. I highly recommend Tea as a presenter/speaker to anyone who wants a different voice.

Tea’s an amazing teacher — you can see this first-hand if you’re ever in a class with her…Teaching side-by-side on Prosperity’s Kitchen, I found her advice particularly action-oriented rather than heavy in theory — which led to some particularly satisfying interactions with students and even audience members who put her tips into practice, then excitedly reported the results back to us. The TL;DR version: Tea is the business storytelling teacher you need to drive your company forward.

Tea coached us through marketing plan development using her creative and fresh storytelling approach. She taught us to look at our businesses in a new way, and dream bigger for ourselves. I highly recommend Tea as a business consultant and look forward to working with her again.

Tea’s become my ‘go-to’ person for branding, content and story-telling. Not only is she brilliant at what she does, but she does everything with integrity and heart. And that’s not always easy to find in the online world. Tea was a guest speaker for a pod-casting course I teach — she talked about the best, most authentic way to tell your story and connect with your audience while being true to your brand. As always, she over delivered. If you’re looking for honest training that will grow your business, I can’t recommend Tea enough.
