Berkeley Storytelling Academy

Develop your brand story and your B2B narrative with Berkeley’s Storytelling Academy

Most business stories are the human equivalent of a stranger you meet at a party who talks endlessly about themselves. Before long, you’re looking over their shoulder for someone more interesting. And that could be your competitor.

During this masterclass session with our Chief Storyteller Chris Hewitt, you will learn how to filter your message through a six-step story process and end up with something much more engaging and memorable.

This will bring clarity to your pitch and in turn, win hearts, minds and more exposure for your business.

How does our Storytelling Academy work?

How do best-selling authors get you to turn the page until you can’t stop? What glues you to your seat at the cinema or theatre? Why do some bloggers command such a huge following?

Professional storytellers such as filmmakers, writers, authors and journalists follow a bunch of rules that are largely the same. There’s a magic formula to telling stories.

We have codified their secrets into a process that works. If it works for Hollywood, it can work for you.

The in person workshop is approximately three hours long, with a maximum of eight delegates

The virtual workshop is less than two hours with as many as wish to join.
