Our expertise

Events and conferences

In a digital age, events and conferences offer rare spaces for the human connection needed to catalyse engagement and performance.

Why do you need story-driven creative events and conferences?

Events and conferences often fail to deliver lasting value. Our story-driven approach shakes people out of inertia, takes them on a journey, builds belief and equips people to take action. That’s why our events and conferences consistently achieve record engagement scores for our clients.

Whether staging intimate training workshops or large-scale arena events that engage audiences from the boardroom to the shop floor, our approach builds an event around a bespoke narrative that brings messages to life – from customer service design to leadership development; brand experience to the launch of your strategy – with powerful visual storytelling and interactive design that delivers incredible energy and focus.

By harnessing the power of personal storytelling during the event itself – guided by skilled facilitators – we take audiences on a personal journey that encourages people to make personal connections to the event narrative and identify ways they can contribute.

By providing a strong narrative framework and supporting tools, we sustain post-event momentum: aligning activity to a shared story, strengthening the strategic connection, accelerating change and improving performance.

How will we help you to achieve this?

Creativity is at the heart of all Storytellers’ events and conferences. Our in-house capability allows us to design and deliver events – from intimate workshops to arena-size experiences – that showcase years of experience across large-scale live event production, workshop design, world-class facilitation, TV producing, theatre direction, filmmaking, graphic and experiential design, strategic writing and Executive presentation coaching.

Depending on client needs, we deliver:

Narrative creation: we co-create a bespoke event narrative  (light-touch and local, or high-level strategic) that brings the core message of your event to life – for example, customer service or brand experience – to give context and meaning to the event

Creative development: we develop the creative concept that captures the emotional core of the story, engages the audience and guides all event collateral and related campaigns

Event and conference design: we design high-impact interventions, carefully aligned to the strategic narrative and the emotional tone and shape of the agenda; taking the audience on a journey that ensures the emotional and rational connection needed to deliver strategic objectives, and inspire engagement and personal empowerment

Creative collateral: we develop a range of creative collateral, including bespoke films, interactive apps and toolkits to support teams in exploring what the story means for them, how they will cascade it through the organisation, and how they will personally play their part in delivering it

Venue-sourcing and production design: we carefully source the most appropriate venues and plan the best way to bring the strategic narrative and agenda to life in the chosen space, working with the steering team and our in-house Technical Directors and Production Managers

Executive coaching and rehearsal: we work 1:1 with the leadership team who will present at the event to help them to bring the story-driven content to life in a relevant and authentic way that connects effectively with the audience; rehearse presenters in the storytelling stagecraft, working with the on-stage visuals, room layout, and their specific role within the wider event

Facilitation and navigation: we provide world-class event ‘navigation’, ensuring that presentations link together effectively and the exercises are well facilitated to achieve and sustain maximum energy in the room

Technical direction, production and graphics: we provide an ‘end-to-end’ production package, including first class technical direction, all technical production hardware and crew, show-calling and graphics

Delegate management and logistics: we shape the audience’s holistic experience using in-house capability to design and manage everything from the registration process and accommodation to catering and travel logistics
