Shannon Peel is a storyteller. She lives in Vancouver, Canada. When we recorded this podcast, Shannon was sweltering in – believe it or not – 7 am sunshine. With a name like Peel, you’d think she was related to a famous London-based policeman. Sir Robert Peel. Chances are she was. And what a story that is. The thing about her name though, is she uses it, relentlessly.
Check out her website:
She also has, BrandAPeel, UnPeeled, MemberAPeel, and LifeUnPeeled – you get the picture.
Anyway, let’s get started…
So is Vancouver on the same latitude as Scotland? (Wrong again, Graham!)
Peel is both noun and a verb.
What Makes Shannon Who She is?
Have you got someone in your house who is always one Google search away from knowing more *than you) about the thing you’re watching?
For Shannon, it is professional curiosity. Shannon says we all have lots of stories. But she knows when people are getting it entirely wrong. Like, with pitches. Founders eager to get their hands on investor money will gush out everything.
Here’s how Shannon can help. Ask yourself what is it you are really trying to say.
- Start with WHO IS YOUR AUDIENCE and what they are interested in.
- THEN craft the story.
It can be a personal brand story or a business brand story.

Graham mentioned, “Story Click” – that moment in a film where you get it. You can see the future, or you think you can.
