Storytelling for Impact

Those who tell the stories rule the world

Our societies are built on and shaped by narratives, compelling stories that inspire communities and nations to collaborate and thrive. Stories help to build trust. Crucial for leaders to convey, for clients and customers to feel, and for team members to create. Research shows that we remember information 22 times more if it is conveyed to us with story as well as facts. Imagine the potential for your presentation / pitch / inspirational talk / negotiation in terms of its impact to persuade, motivate, influence, move people to action?

Innovation through Design Thinking

All good innovation starts with finding and framing problems 

Design Thinking is a mindset, and a methodology for innovation and complex problem solving that puts user’s needs and preferences at the centre of the process. 

It is a human – centred approach to innovation that matches user’s needs (what’s desirable) with what is technologically achievable (what’s feasible) and the requirements for business success (what’s viable). It’s an incredibly engaging, radically collaborative approach to innovation and problem solving.
