Story can touch and transform everything you do. Applied Storytelling will give you the translation tools to put story to work in whatever field you operate.

Influencers, artists, teachers, therapists, activists, executives, environmentalists all now use stories to reach their listeners, The reason: because nothing works so strongly on the conscious and unconscious mind. In story both hemispheres of the brain light up and all the gender possibilities in us unite; thus the magic! Even Sci-fi stories are now being used to help companies imagine how their business might be affected by technological developments (Times: leading article 1/8/17).

What is perhaps surprising is that once you have learnt the code to translate the picture language of story, you only need one story to do the work for you.

Once there was a woman who found a diamond that had fallen out on the road. Her fellow travellers all wished they had been the one to pick it up. Seeing this,she gave it to the one who needed it most. A few days later he came to her and handed it back. “Why have you done this?” she asked. Because I want what it was in you that could give it away.”

If you haven’t discovered the power of story, or if you would like to deepen your knowledge, come spend some time with us and we’ll share with you the tools we have developed for you to apply story whatever your passion, whatever your occupation.
