 Story Huddle


Confidently draw out the stories that prove your impact and inspire action

A simple story gathering system for NFP leaders and organisations.

Let's Huddle!

You’re a passionate leader in a purpose driven organisation.

You’re here to make change but right now:

  • You’re struggling to drive performance and prove the value and heart of your work.
  • You and your team are busy! You're like ships in the night - time to  stop, reflect and connect are rare. 
  • You want to build capacity and connection for yourself and your team...and share the stories that prove it's all worth it.

And maybe you’ve tried:

  • Asking your teams to share their experiences and insights  but nothing comes back.
  • Bringing in an expert to gather stories that you can use everyday but that's expensive and not sustainable.
  • You've tried a variety of trainings to build capacity and storytelling skills but there's been no sustained change.

WE HAVE A SIMPLE SOLUTION (that actually works and is fun!)


 After 20 years of experience helping our clients capture and tell their real stories, we have created an easy to follow, enjoyable system for leaders who want to motivate their teams and start drawing upon fresh and emotive stories in as little as an hour a month. 

As Moya always says...

Stories aren’t hard to find, they’re just easy to overlook.

How long will this course take?

It depends on how you use it. The videos and materials are designed to fit busy schedules. You can get up to speed with everything you need to know about the basics of Story Huddling in under 2 hours (and that includes one short coffee break!) But there's loads more depth to discover if you make your way through all the modules. You can become a total Story Huddle expert in 4 short sessions.

How successful can storytelling be if we’re working remotely?

Be ready to be amazed! It’s not where you are, it’s how you listen. We designed the Story Huddle specifically to support remote working and teams in different locations. Once everyone learns the Huddle Habits, they can take their story huddles anywhere - virtually or face-to-face.
