Do your people face any of these challenges?
Teams not embracing and living company values
Key messages lost in discursive communication
Employees resistant to organisational change
Leaders struggling to motivate their team to excel
Clients disengaged or tired of the ‘hard-sell’
Deadlines delayed in cross-divisional teams
Upskilling their corporate storytelling skills is the solution.
The magic of storytelling in business conversations…
When was the last time you were enthralled by someone’s message or deeply motivated to take action in your organisation?
If you’re like most leaders we know, it’s a rarity and no wonder. Rushing to the next meeting, hosting presentations full of dot points and spreadsheets. Today’s professionals have overloaded plates and no room for another serve of information!
Yet, when a simple story is delivered to us, our brain fires up… engaging us immediately.
Stories are a mighty business tool for leaders to cut through the noise and deliver memorable messages with impact.
Conjuring up our imaginations, stories help to frame ideas into something tangible, relatable and meaningful. With proven high engagement, this is the way to get your message heard and retained in today’s busy world.
Where can business storytelling make a difference in your organisation?
1. Help teams to visualise and drive a new strategy
2. Drive objectives with ease by building influential leaders in difficult matrix structures
3. Achieve employee buy-in for your new change initiatives
4. Consult with clients more meaningfully to earn trust and increase sales
5. Simplify complex information for clients and stakeholders
6. Effortlessly engage and inspire teams in meetings
7. Deliver a knockout sales pitch
8. Captivate audiences fast in presentations
9. Create a connection with company values
What business storytelling skills will your team learn?
”Taught me life skills I can use beyond my work. It is easy to remember, structured & very methodical. I will make sure I embed it in my work-life 'DNA'.Amanda RozarioSpecialist, Banking Sector

Honourees Storytelling Course | Banking Sector
Recently, we were invited to deliver our storytelling program to a group of high potential employees across a large organisation in the banking sector. With 320 participants in various business areas and locations across Asia Pacific, we customised the types of delivery we provided to meet their needs.
Their priority was to build a culture where their core values and beliefs were being translated into day-to-day conversations and behaviours.
Consultation with the program organiser led us to recommend a delivery with three core options, tailored to the varied locations and availabilities of the staff.
This encompassed live, physical and online learning including –
- 4-hour in-house workshops at central locations
- Live 4-hour WebEx webinar for regional locations
- Online course for people who could not attend
We hosted three live half-day workshops with their employees at various cities across Australia. Each piece of training explored how to build and deliver stories that reflect the core values of this organisation.
Deeply practical and relevant to their day-to-day work. All attendees were taught the ‘how’ of storytelling as well as the ‘why’. Each leaving with their own story to use the next day at work.
Since the program, the program sponsors have noticed a lift in their confidence when delivering. They are able to utilise storytelling in their everyday business conversations to drive key objectives successfully and secure the results they need. This investment by the bank has helped to future-proof the high potential employees who will become the next generation of leaders.
”A great session with clear key actions and takeaways that can be used in both a professional & personal environment. Thank you.Antara VarmaAssociate, Process Capability, Banking Sector
Business Storytelling Masterclass | Holding Redlich
In March 2019, we were asked by Holding Redlich to deliver a keynote for their clients at a professional development event. Predominantly in-house lawyers from a variety of industries, our objective was to focus on how telling stories could lead to greater success in your negotiations.
In just 90-minutes we unpacked the following:
- Why storytelling is important in business
- How storytelling can give you a competitive edge in your negotiations
- Why telling stories is better than just delivering facts and figures
- How to craft a compelling story that is relevant to the audience
A wonderfully interactive and informative session, we received lots of positive feedback from the participants. In particular, the practical elements of the delivery were highly valued by attendees.
