Compelling stories for companies, campaigns and causes
Strong storytelling skills can set you apart from your competitors. Good stories are central to your content strategy, whether you are promoting a cause or building your brand. We can write stories that sizzle, soar or sing or train your team how to find and tell better true tales.
Our course Compelling storytelling for companies, campaigns and causes will show you how to breathe fresh life into your content and increase your ability to attract, hold and influence readers.
This course will teach you how to structure and write narratives that can enliven everything from reports and case studies to blogs and speeches. Using real-life examples, it will give you lots of tools and tips on how to write compelling stories for your business or organisation.

“It was great to take stock and actually have time to think about the stories we’re telling here at the City of Sydney and how we might tell them in a more engaging way. I thoroughly enjoyed the Compelling storytelling course and how its content was reflected in the form it took: in other words, the course leaders were great storytellers themselves.”
We hold public sessions of this course, and can also organise an in-house group session at any time that is convenient for you. Call Tony Spencer-Smith at 02 4308-9152 or email him to discuss your workshop requirements.
