Storytelling helps us find an audience who care about our purpose. They help us communicate who we are and our business values. Facts and figures go only so far, stories are remembered and demand a response from those who hear or read them.

Testimonials from Past Storytellers
A Different Perspective on My Story
I really enjoyed Telling Stories, it’s been great. I’ve been here for the last hour. The company has been fascinating. I’ve learned loads and managed to come away with a different perspective on the story I was telling, in order to improve it. I’m impressed. It’s been really good.
An inspiring evening.
An inspiring evening (Telling Rags to Riches Stories workshop). I thought that telling your partner's story was very good. Firstly, you listened harder to retain it but secondly, hearing your story told by someone else helps you to see what points you were able to put across and what the other person would wish to highlight in your tale. It helps you to adjust your own telling of the tale.
