Get Storied is the deep vein of the Storytelling world. This workshop completely changed how we approach human-centered design. If you seek to understand yourself, the deep story of why you exist, and the change you seek to make in the world, it’s time to Get Storied.

An amazing day! The programme was insightful, practical and pragmatic. Michael has a great way of focusing your attention on what is important to refine your story. This is an art, that he makes accessible to all. I got great insight into how story grounds us, connects us and gives us faith in the future. Genius!

StoryU gave me the tools to humanize organizations and have conversations that are not abstract…but grounded in emotion, in a true story and in something people care about in a simple way – not in a this business-intellectual-serious way.

Video Testimonials


 

As a journalist…It felt really good to get into the nitty gritty of how a story is told for maximum emotional impact and resonance with my audience.

Julia Allison
Columnist & TV Personality

I think that storytelling in most cases, especially for products, it’s the most critical ingredient. And it’s often the most neglected. That was one of my ah-ha moments that really clicked.

Raman Frey
Founder, Good People

 
 

I’m super interested in the human condition, but would never talk about my personal story. What I saw in the first exercise was how to reframe what I was saying, and I was actually more inspired to share.

One of the best workshops I’ve attended in a long time. Vital, informative, essential — and amusing! Simple process steps that I can take away to create an impactful story. It doesn’t have to be complicated, in fact its much better if it isn’t.
