Stories are the way we make sense of the world

TELL THE INSIGHT STORY - The Seven Story Tools System

Insight Professionals can become confident and influential business storytellers by following our proven Story Tools System for building powerful communications skills

Making the transformation to being an influential storyteller

We explain how to tap into the emotional power of storytelling and build insight professionals' confidence in becoming influential and persuasive business storytellers.

Building storytelling skills with a proven system

Our Tell the Insight Story programme makes it possible for everyone to be a great storyteller. We studied how novelists, dramatists, and film makers tell their stories and applied these ideas to the world of business by creating our Seven Story Tools System.
