True Storytelling Workshops
'Humans simply aren’t moved to action by dense Powerpoint slides or spreadsheets packed with figures. People are moved by emotion. The best way to emotionally connect other people to our agenda begins with ‘Once upon a time…’
'Tell To Win’ by Peter Guber

Why Storytelling for Business?
“A story is a journey that moves the listener, and when the listener goes on that journey they feel different and the result is persuasion and sometimes action.”
Jennifer Aaker, Stanford’s Graduate School of Business
Every TED Talk starts with a story, engaging the audience with a personal anecdote that grabs their attention and makes them want to relate and hear more. People remember stories. Not facts and figures. When stories become part of the fabric of your company you will be vividly remembered by colleagues and clients and you create a more open culture.
True storytelling workshops bring teams closer together, teach advanced presentation skills, naturally boost productivity and creativity, help generate fresh ideas and discover new approaches to problem solving. This feeds into developing stronger client relationships, aligning employees’ story with the story and ethos of the company and helping to foster a supportive and creative culture in the workplace.
