BeCause & Effect #10: Cate Friesen

Environment & Animal Welfare

Cate Friesen loves telling stories. She’s been doing it her entire life, in nearly every career she’s had; from singer/songwriter, documentarian with the CBC, and especially now, as the driving force behind The Story Source.

She’s been a key trainer in the Winnipeg Foundation’s Fast Pitch events for the last few years, and frequently works with businesses and non-profits to help them find and tell their stories, through facilitation and coaching.

I sat down with Cate, to talk about the power of story, the challenge of vulnerability, and the importance of finding your calling, whatever that may be.
