Our Chief Storytellers will teach you how to harness the power of story in your business and deliver business storytelling courses and bespoke workshops in a classroom setting (where permitted) as well as via live online video conferencing.
The power of story will make your PR more influential. Your marketing content rise above the mundane. Your social media more shareable. Your brand message more inspiring. Your sales pitch more successful, and your research data more emotional.
We also provide learn-at-your-own-pace online courses featuring pre-recorded video lectures with interactive quizzes plus a step-by-step guide to write a new North Star narrative that can inform all your marketing content using our six-part storytelling template.
