The Art of Storytelling

  • Captivate any audience through ancient bardic wisdom

  • Share your crystal clear vision of the future to turn it into reality

  • Make your customers and employees feel truly heroic!

Perfect for entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and revolutionaries

Humans understand the world through stories. Employees don’t just work for a company; they become part of that company’s mission. Customers don’t just buy a product; they use it to further their own heroic journey.

Chances are, if you’re here, you already know what your mission is, and what vision you have for the future. But how compellingly can you explain it to others? Crystallising the story you wish to tell, and threading it with depth and emotion, is a communication skill that will transform employees into acolytes, and customers into loyal followers.

The Hivemind team are obsessed with the art of storytelling. Over the years, we’ve told thousands of stories onstage; epic fantasies, crime sagas, coming-of-age dramas, and Greek tragedies. We’ve analysed popular stories, distilling the key ingredients we need to bring to our shows. Along the way, we’ve rediscovered ancient truths, such as Joseph Campell’s theory of the Monomyth, while making new discoveries. In this 1 - 3 hour team building workshop, we’ll outline the essential components of any powerful story, and use games and exercises to show you how to apply them to the stories you’re trying to tell. Surprising truths will emerge; for example, you are not the hero of the story you must tell! To win over customers, employees, and anyone you’re trying to influence, all you have to do is hand them the role of the hero…

The world of tomorrow is shaped by the storytellers of today. Using a toolkit that Hivemind has refined and put into practice in every performance, you will become one of us, captivating hearts and minds with your vision.

I’ve experienced Isla do her magic at an improv workshop at the Crossmodalism community last weekend, helping us overcome our “not for me”-zone with her warm, open and non-forcing attitude. It was a new and valuable experience for me, ending in seamlessly easy weird and wonderful co-created storytelling with someone we had never met before. Something I’d never believed happening at the start of the session! I took away a whole bunch of techniques to apply in other creative settings. Can only recommend it! Thanks!
