Bernadette Jiwa: Write the Truth

The Collective Wisdom Podcast with Cat Preston

Hey there my wise friends, it's so good to be back with you for a brand new season of Collective Wisdom after the long summer break. It's certainly been a tumultuous few weeks here in the UK with not only a new prime minister. But then the sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the impact of which has been felt across the nation and reverberated around the world. It's also been a time to reflect on the legacy that 70 years of dedicated and devoted service to a job leaves behind as Kirsty Young reporting for The BBC said so movingly, after the funeral, “She made history. She was history, and she will never be forgotten.” Which brings me on to today's guest, my lovely friend, the author, and now novelist, Bernadette Jiwa, who is here today to talk to us about her new novel, The Making of Her, which as you'll hear is a story that's steeped with her own history, and really feels like it comes straight from the heart. Bernadette was kind enough to agree to interview me back in 2020 for Episode One season one of the podcast, and it's almost unthinkable just how much the world has changed since then, it was a real pleasure to catch up with her and to learn more about the new novel, which although the characters are fictitious, is dedicated to the illegitimate children born in Ireland who so often grew up without ever knowing their real family so that they too are not forgotten. I'm sure you're going to enjoy this conversation just as much as I did. And I promise you the novel does not disappoint you.

Talking Aussie Books with Bernadette Jiwa

Talking Aussie Books

Originally from Ireland, Bernadette Jiwa migrated to Melbourne and started her writing career as a blogger and non-fiction writer - later becoming a storytelling adviser and the author of ten Amazon bestselling non-fiction titles.  In 2019, Bernadette began writing what would become her debut novel.  Called 'The Making of Her' (published by Penguin), Bernadette has written a mesmerising human story. A page-turning, can't-look-away mother-daughter story about the devastating consequences of a single decision and whether the past can ever truly be forgotten.  A stunning story.  I had the privilege of chatting with Bernadette for the podcast a little while ago.

Bernadette Jiwa: You don’t need more time. You just need to decide.

The Collective Wisdom Podcast with Cat Preston

Welcome to the final episode of this first series of The Collective Wisdom Podcast. So, I'll be ending where I began this series with Bernadette Jiwa. She is an amazing friend and mentor, and she was the person whose lovely soft Irish accent you heard interviewing me right there in episode one. We talked about her music choice of U2 and her stories of kindness and wisdom she has learnt around not limiting yourself to other people's expectations and beliefs around what you can achieve. She now has at least 10 best sellers on the Amazon list. So, it just goes to show that if you've got that conviction and motivation, if you can find it in yourself to just take that first step it's amazing where it will lead. Thank you so much for being part of series one, I look forward to seeing you back here in series two. You can find out more about Bernadette Jiwa and her amazing books on marketing at The Story of Telling - https://thestoryoftelling.com/ My personal favourite of her many books is: Story Driven: You don't have to compete when you know who you are - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Story-Driven-dont-need-compete-ebook/dp/B07B4NBDSG And her latest is: What great story tellers know - https://www.amazon.co.uk/What-Great-Storytellers-Know-Influential-ebook/dp/B08PCLR5R8 The Story Skills Workshop - Learn how to tell better stories https://akimbo.com/thestoryskillsworkshop Seth Godin: Purple Cow - https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=seth+godin Song: U2 ‘Ordinary Love’  U2 Singing Ordinary Love on The Jimmy Fallon Show - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fum3g86zUPc Wisdom ‘You don’t need more time.

Summary of Difference by Bernadette Jiwa | Free Audiobook

QuickRead Podcast - Free book summaries

The One-Page Method for Reimaging Your Business and Reinventing Your Market. Think about the products you buy. Do you have a connection with them? Likely not. In fact, we often buy products simply because of price or convenience. There are some products and services, however, that people feel a deep loyalty to. Think about brands like Apple, Facebook, and Airbnb who have a loyal following and devoted fan base. What is it about these companies that make people fall in love with them? Throughout Difference, author Bernadette Jiwa lays out how brands like these use the traditional “Ps” of marketing and add one additional, key ingredient: people. That’s right, they place the consumer first and center their needs around everything they do. The result? Love and loyalty. So how can you do the same for your business? Find out now. As you read, you’ll learn why you need to start with the truth instead of a product, why empathy is important, and how companies like Airbnb and Uber have set a new standard in their industries.

How To Save A Story With Bernadette Jiwa, Creator of The Story Skills Workshop

We Will Get Through This

The poet Muriel Rukeyser wrote, “The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.” I think, actually, it’s likely made of both … and while I can’t really claim any deep expertise in physics, I do know a little bit about the power of story-telling. A little bit. But not as much as Bernadette Jiwa who amongst other things has teamed up with Seth Godin to create a fantastic workshop on storytelling as part of his Akimbo series. Storytelling is the fabric that creates relationship and community and history. In creating history, it allows you to navigate where you are in the present, and also lay a path out to where you might be going in the future. But it’s plenty easy to tell a story poorly. A boring start, a soggy middle, an end that trails off … we’ve all been on the receiving end of that non-epic. To get beyond that, to save your story, you need a Story Scaffold, which is just what Bernadette shares in this episode. Bernadette helps people, organizations, and communities practice everyday storytelling to build resilience, trust, and connection … all critical skills to help us get through this.  You can meet Bernadette at her website www.thestoryoftelling.com This show is brought to you by The Advice Trap, Michael Bungay Stanier’s latest book. You can access a wide range of tools to help #TameYourAdviceMonster at www.TheAdviceTrap.com If you’d like to spend more time with Michael and people he admires, sign up for The Year of Living Brilliantly. 52 teachers over 52 weeks, each teaching one brilliant insight.
