Why RTC Is the Ideal Partner to Trust

At Round Table Companies (RTC), we have been specializing in storytelling since our incorporation in 2006 by coaching authors, packaging books, and creating event experiences. While we’ve been in the business of developing stories and inspiring audiences for years, we are now providing education services that guide you in telling your own stories, shining light on your own sense of vulnerability, and discovering your own authentic voice. Our clients have included Zappos, Magoosh, Microsoft, ADP, Marketo, Workday, and hundreds of others who have relied on our team to create a safe space for their vulnerability and growth. We are the creators of the RTC storytelling art wall experience, the Vulnerability is Sexy card game, and our documentary of the same name has won Addy and Hermes awards.
