Event description


Why do our stories matter?

We have always told each other stories. Scientific evidence shows that’s because we are programmed to listen and learn from them. It’s how we've survived and thrived.

In an age where attention is the rarest commodity, we now have to find new ways to attract and retain it, and even more importantly, inspire recall.

How can you get your message to the people you most want to reach and make sure they remember it.

Story telling is how we’ve done it for millennia. Now it’s enjoying a major resurgence as businesses, organisations, and individuals realise its power to deliver a message that cuts through where normal communication fails.

You have the opportunity to tell your stories to reduce the distance between people, to heal rifts, to gather crowd power, to change how people think, and to do what needs to be done now, and into the future.

Purposeful, intentional stories unite us in a common cause, bring us to agreement, and inspire us to act.

If stories are the most compelling, influential and powerful tool in your communication toolbox, what stories do you tell and how well do you tell them?

The Why Your Story Matters workshop is an intimate and intensive workshop that introduces you to skills that not only make you a compelling storyteller, but enrich all forms of your communication, verbal and written to create lasting impressions.

Once you understand how to do it with the right purpose and intention, you can use this skill across any platform – business, philanthropy, promotions, or personal endeavour.
