Stories are the single
most powerful weapon
in a leader’s arsenal.
– Howard E. Gardner
Why do this?
During your career, you will meet more people than in any other area of our life. And they will frequently have radically different perspectives, interests and concerns from yours.
So how can we win them over when they simply don’t care about your ideas, plans and strategies?
With the magic of stories!
Stories transform us. They have the power to make us think and feel differently. They make indelible marks on our memories. They inspire us to act.
With the advent of social media, we have never before taken in so much information in story format – it is now our vehicle of choice. Furthermore, psychological research has demonstrated that stories are the most powerful communication tools for changing hearts and minds.
And this makes it all the more sad that most professionals today are completely lost when it comes to storytelling – the communication master technique of the early 21st Century.
ORGANISATIONAL STORYTELLING ENABLES YOU TO FULLY ENGAGE YOUR AUDIENCE AND MAKE THEM CARE ABOUT ISSUES WHICH THEY PREVIOUSLY HAD LITTLE TO NO INTEREST IN

I expected the Audit Report Writing Workshop to be a very dry and theoretical course with instructions on how we write reports in Vodafone.
But to tell you the truth, I came home and I said to my wife: “Susan, today I’ve had the most amazing training I’ve ever had!” – and I’ve had some great training!
The report writing training was fantastic – the difference being that the trainer really knew how to bring the message across. The training was very interactive. It not only taught me how to write in the most efficient and professional way but also how to make a powerful connection with the reader.
All in all, we not only learnt how to write reports, but we also learnt how to communicate effectively which I think is the key. That was the real added value of this course.

As a training experience, Financial Report Writing Workshop took our attention from the very start – not just me, but the whole group.
People were saying: “Wow! It’s 9 o’clock on the day of the first session and we have already defined exactly what the key problem is with our report writing.”
I would definitely recommend this financial report writing training. It’s not just about the books and the materials, but it’s important to learn things that you will remember at work and know how to use.
I immediately applied what I learnt from the training into my real business life. The expertise of the trainer and how the training was delivered was the key to success here. What is delivered is important, but how it was delivered was what I would also like to recommend. In this sense, it was better than 99% of the training I have had till now.
