People power organisations.

Around the world, we're flicking on the switch.

Big stories change people.

Story is your differentiator. Your personality generator. Your competitive advantage. It conveys your values, your purpose, your beliefs to the world.

Story starts conversations, builds relationships and creates advocates for life, with your employees, customers and investors alike.

Story is what makes your business human. Story makes you… you.

At Write the Talk, we uncover and shape powerful long-running stories that engage your people and captivate your audiences. Stories that are crucial to your success: your strategy, your culture, the transformation you’re going through, your investment plans, your product plans and the value you’re bringing to customers.

People power organisations. Story turns them on.

Our Story Shaping programme.
The four steps.

Powerful, long-running stories are the foundations of engagement, and our Story Shaping programme builds unique narratives that work hard for you every day. We shape and map the story that tackles head-on the challenges you have, then we get it working. And keep it working.

Master the power of story and language.

Our tailored client workshops, public Masterclasses and interactive training experiences are part of our commitment to bringing the power and impact of story to everyone.

Turn your managers into leaders with our bespoke Storytelling for leaders workshop. Story is the most powerful engagement tool around. When your management have mastered it, expect to see big improvements in engagement, productivity and performance.

Small business survival depends on a clear and distinctive marketing story that attracts prospects and motivates the team. Our two-part online Masterclass on Building a future with purpose takes owners and directors through the process of creating and planning a story to take on the world.

Every organisation can improve its productivity, engagement and performance by addressing one essential skill – writing. Writing with a human touch is a powerful package of training and support that will create an army of capable of writers to transform your business.

For small businesses and ambitious individuals, Writing for success is a two-part public Masterclass packed with expertise for the new world of work.
