“Amplifying The Voices Of The People You Support

Through First-Person Storytelling”

Nothing will show the your organisation’s impact more powerfully than the authentic, well-told stories of the people connected with your organisation – your staff, volunteers, trustees and clients/service users. It is more important than ever to ensure the stories they have to tell are being heard. So now you need to think about how you work together to build trust and to nuture your network of storytellers to showcase the work you are doing. Come to this workshop to find out how to harness the power of storytelling for your cause. We’ll share some examples of charities sharing stories from the frontline as we face the biggest crisis of our lifetimes – coronavirus

What you’ll get out of it:

  • Discover how a range of charities of all sizes are telling authentic stories by giving a platform to a network of storytellers.
  • Explore the barriers that charities might face to working in this way and get solutions
  • Top Tips for incorporating first hand storytelling in your work.

My work has always focused on the power of human interest stories, and I am passionate about giving a platform to stories and issues that don’t get reported or are misreported. I am a BBC trained reporter and producer with over 20 years’ experience of unearthing powerful stories. At the BBC, I focused on human interest storytelling, developing and delivering high-impact social action campaigns across radio, television and digital addressing issues related to domestic violence, the care system, homelessness and dying well, in partnership with the charity sector. I also worked on flagship programmes including – Children in Need and Comic Relief.

I founded sounddelivery in 2006 to help charities and other socially minded organisations navigate the changing digital landscape and find new ways of telling their stories. Key to this was building the skills and confidence across organisations and not just within the communications and fundraising departments.
