Storytelling skills training

This is the most powerful communication skill of them all

Introducing Effective Business Storytelling, a 6-hour course for inhouse teams. In just one day, we’ll help unlock the hidden value in your workplace – and empower your people to exert greater influence, form faster connections, and above all, be remembered.

Why storytelling skills matter

Human beings are hard-wired to respond to – and remember – stories. In fact, storytelling has always been crucial to our evolution, helping us learn from the past so we could imagine the future. 

That’s why storytelling is about so much more than sharing anecdotes.

It’s a powerful way to transmit values – helping audiences grasp concepts quickly and connect more deeply with your brand.

By helping your people master the art of storytelling, your organisation will:

  • Empower your leaders to inspire and motivate more effectively
  • Establish stronger, deeper human connections – internally and externally
  • Proactively shape and align your brand narrative
  • Foster a more cohesive and confident workforce

Who is this course for?

Effective Business Storytelling will provide value to staff across your organisation, including:

  • Managers and leadership teams
  • Sales and marketing teams
  • Admin, support and customer service staff
  • Technical advisors and consultants

And the course is for diverse learners too; people of all backgrounds will improve their ability to use stories strategically in the workplace.

  • Tell authentic and relevant stories  
  • Articulate their value to the wider business

We cap face-to-face sessions at 15 people – as groups any larger than this reduce opportunities for interaction and feedback.
