Story Workshops

“Stories can conquer fear, you know. They can make the heart bigger.”
Ben Okri

Why Story?

A stimulating and relatable yarn has simply got to be the most effective way to communicate. At their most basic level, stories are learning tools, showing how a change in behavior or perspective can lead to meaningful results.

Stories Have Power
Stories Invite Fresh Perspectives
Stories Shake Up Thinking Patterns

Stories workshops lead to connection, stimulate conversation, and challenge preconceptions and biases. Inspiring, revelatory persuading stories help us understand ourselves.

How it works:
We consult, we listen, we interpret your story topics.
We think laterally and creatively
We write
We present
We facilitate
We act: by engaging actors to bring story workshops to life.
We deliver in interactive, practical, experiential modes.  


Who for?
Story Telling Workshops are designed for anyone who works with others to achieve real and meaningful change.

What you can expect:

  • Experience positive results from using playfulness in training
  • Enhance the quality of communication and interpersonal skills
  • Gain confidence to know how to build rapport
  • Boost Leadership Skills
  • Build Engagement
  • Find Your Presentation Power

 “We tell ourselves stories in order to live.”

Anni Inc came to present at the Black Dog Institute to a packed room full of people who weren’t quite sure what to expect. I asked Anni Inc to demonstrate what they do as we spend a lot of time in the corporate culture giving presentations on understanding mood disorders and how to improve mental health and resilience. It was simply fantastic and everyone was genuinely enthralled.

You can only do so much with a Power Point – with Anni Inc’s insights, understanding coupled with extraordinary theatrical abilities; the message was sent home loud and clear. . If you are looking for a way to lift staff moral, get some pointy understanding underway or shift a particular cultural dynamic I would thoroughly recommend Anni Inc.
