Let me tell you a story with Professional Storyteller Joy Pitt

The ability to tell stories we are told is what distinguishes Homo sapiens from all other species. Stories are the glue that bind millions of people together to a common idea, to a common interpretation of the world. That’s why stories are so important and so powerful.

‘Controlling the narrative’ is a phrase we hear regularly now in our political discourse. Christianity, Brexit, Fake news, the latest crime figures or the Nike swoosh are all the consequence of someone creating and telling a story. For as long as there has been language there have been stories.
