Storytelling for Business
Storytelling for Business Programmes
I work with businesses to help them craft and communicate the stories that define their mission. Through workshops and training participants learn practical storytelling skills and discover authentic ways to clarify corporate vision and values.
“The ability to articulate your story or that of your company is crucial…A great salesperson knows how to tell a story in which the product is the hero. A successful line manager can rally the team to extraordinary efforts through a story that shows how short-term sacrifice leads to long-term success. An effective CEO uses an emotional narrative about the company’s mission to attract investors and partners, to set lofty goals, and to inspire employees.” Peter Guber 2008.
Connecting People through Stories and Storytelling
Story Space delivers a range of high quality storytelling for business workshops – from single sessions to bespoke company-wide programmes. These sessions offer storytelling skills training that explore the power of stories to persuade and convince. We’ll work together to collect and shape the stories that will strengthen the organisation and discuss when and where to use them . These workshops offer a creative and dynamic process that is full of opportunities to share motivating stories, and to see how new conversations begin and collaborations emerge.

Feedback from Storytelling for Business Workshops
“I really enjoyed the day, and to have time to actually think about what we do and how to distil that into a coherent message.”
“It was a good opportunity to learn how to structure a story and think creatively about our messaging.”
“Really enjoyable, creative sessions. Carol created a relaxed atmosphere where we felt encouraged to share our ideas… Having attended storytelling training before this was very different and inspiring, giving practical and (hopefully) memorable ways to use the concept in everyday work.”
“The length and depth of your preparation was obvious and much appreciated. The source material was relevant, topical and stimulating – a great choice and accessible to all members of the team.”
“The pace and style of delivery was spot on. Relaxed, informative, and at times gently challenging. Perfect!
“We all came away having learnt so much in such a short space of time … I’d have no hesitation in recommending your excellent coaching services to other clients.
