How to turn your organisation into your own story-gathering powerhouse


Wednesday 25 October

10am - 12noon
2 hour Online Workshop

Set your creativity free… and get others to help you do it!

In this interactive 2 hour Masterclass with much-loved writer and story strategist, Moya Sayer-Jones, you’ll learn how to turn staff members into story finders. And how to transform the way you work from a ‘reporter’ to ‘storygatherer’.

So, if you’re tired of scrambling to find the leads, the impact stories, the ears to the ground for you to work your magic on - get ready. Moya shows you that all it takes is a firm press on the re-set button with a few simple strategies and a shift in your own process.

You’ll start attracting vibrant, meaningful stories and you know what that means? You’ll have what you need to create content you can be proud of.

Consider it as a personal creative refresh for writers, content creators and brand guardians. Time with Moya is always full of ideas and inspiring examples that you can use to shake things up immediately.

What the workshop will cover

●     How in a new, even noisier, world of AI - real stories, will be your absolutely best tool to stand out and stop the thumbscroll,

●     how to make the shift from ‘reporting’ and bring new energy to your writing with first-person narrative techniques

●     how to attract impactful  and emotional stories that reflect diverse experiences, insights and perspectives

●     Moya’s own process for finding stories within stories so you can easily re-purpose across platforms and mediums

●     how to build buy-in and appreciation internally to build your story finding network and keep that ‘story generosity’ flowing

●     troubleshooting tips to overcome old thinking, systemic problems and other things than commonly get in the way of creatives
