Stories tell your impact. Stories sell your mission. Stories bring your people closer.
Confidently draw out the stories that matter to your people and your brand so you can communicate your impact and inspire action
A simple story mining system for organisations on a mission.
YOUR WORK ISN’T JUST ‘WORK’ - IT’S HOW YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE
You’re a passionate and supportive leader in a purpose driven organisation.
You’re here to make change but right now:
- You’re struggling to find the stories that inspire and prove the value and heart of what you do.
- You and your team are driven to deliver your core mission and time to stop and reflect are rare.
- You want to build your own professional story skills (and it’s been on your wish list for a long time!)
And maybe you’ve tried:
- Asking your team “Bring me the stories!” but nothing comes back.
- Bringing in an expert to gather stories but it’s too pricey to be sustainable.
- One day workshops to build story skills but not seeing lasting results.
You might feel like there’s just not enough time to stop and find the stories that matter.
You and your team are driven to deliver on your core mission and moments of reflection are rare.
We understand the pressure. It’s frustrating to know what you need and want - and not being able to get it.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY
After 20 years of experience helping our clients capture and tell their real stories, Moya has taken everything she knows and created an easy to follow 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.
Because we believe...
Stories aren’t hard to find, they’re just easy to overlook.
- Having an endless pool of stories for media, stakeholders, social media and community.
- Knowing your team feel valued, heard and included through the stories they share.
- Feeling confident you can communicate the true value and spirit of your organisation - inside and out.
- Growing your own story skills as a leader naturally.
- And my own personal favourite - never relying on a boring case study again!
This is all possible with…
A unique ritual and process that excites your team, defeats negative chatter and taps into an infinite pool of fresh and engaging stories
...and did we mention it takes just one hour a month?!

Hi I’m Moya,
Story Expert. Idea Generator. Writer. Brand Problem Solver.
I was a best selling comic novelist and screenwriter when I founded Only Human Stories in 2005. Since then, I've worked with hundreds of amazing visionary organisations in Australia and New Zealand including Uniting, Cancer Council of NSW, DIA (NZ), Volunteering Victoria and so many more.
In a nutshell, we help purpose-driven organisations use their stories to do for themselves what they do so well for others - get seen, heard and valued.
We can show you how useful and dynamic your stories can be in building your tribe, energising your message and fulfilling your hopes as a leader… and an all-round great human!
And what could be better than that?
