The future of story telling in the workplace

The Future of Storytelling

Professor Sarah Hurlow | Director of Executive Education | Cardiff Business School

Stories are everywhere – in films, TV soaps, the news, adverts, gossip, novels and children’s bedtime. They draw us into a journey intellectually, emotionally, and physiologically. And this means that they have a powerful role to play in the workplace.

Stories can be used to convey big messages about strategy, branding or change as well as day-to-day messages about performance, wellbeing, and improvement.

This session will focus on using stories to help you make sense for others as well as giving stakeholders – customers, patients, employees, citizens – the means to tell their stories to build community and help us see and do things differently.

The session will look at some of the key elements of a good story and offer quick tips for being a good storyteller.
