Training on telling the story of how your work is making positive change in the world

Do you want to build your skills in telling the story of how your work is making positive change in the world?


Does your organisation need to share its narrative more compellingly?


How can you tell your story in a way that will inspire others to be part of it?

I run regular webinars, face-to-face training and one-to-one support for organisations wanting to build their staff's skills in telling the story of the work they do.

The support is for anyone writing for social media, newsletters, case studies, TED talks or other presentations. It particularly uses research (from DFID, UCL, Oxfam, Comic Relief and others) on how to share stories in ways that leverage support - whether practical or financial.

My support uses my experience in writing for BBC Radio 4, for newspapers and online media and running charity fundraising campaigns.

My webinars are free, with the option of paid one-to-one follow-up afterwards. I also run face-to-face training in the UK and the Balkans for teams or for individuals.

Get in touch if you'd like recordings of previous webinars on these subjects or are interested in training for you or others in your organisation on these or related themes.
