About The Story Mill:
The Story Mill is an innovative company that connects people in business through stories and storytelling.
We discovered that at the root of every business problem there's a disconnect between people. That made us curious about the secrets to building better business chemistry. After exploring psychology, NLP and the world of story, we discovered three secrets;
First is that to connect with people you need to engage them beyond their intellect. You've got to touch their hearts and souls and earn the right to be trusted by them.
Second is that the best way to create these rich connections in business is by telling and listening to stories.
Third is that storytelling is not a new-age gyration – it’s as old as time itself. It's always been the way that humans have communicated impactful and memorable messages. Now people are recognising that storytelling is an essential business and life skill.
We help people to create better business connections through stories and storytelling. We show people how to discover their own great stories, craft magnetic narratives and broadcast their stories with impact.
The Story Mill, was born in 2013 to bring storytelling to people who want to create better chemistry inside and outside their buisiness.

About Your Trainer:
Claire Taylor is author of The Tao of Storytelling, Chief Storyteller and Co-founder of The Story Mill.
My story came about through serendipity. As a corporate Brand/Marketing Director, turned consultant I’d become restless. A chance conversation in 2011 got me writing a blog of stories. It re-kindled a passion I’d had since childhood. A year later I trained as a storytelling performer. I was hooked!
The recession created a trust gap in business. The corporate world beckoned to me as a place where storytelling could create better connections between people. It was an opportunity to share what I’d discovered, enrich the working lives of others and help to rebuild trust in business.
The blog became a book called The Tao of Storytelling that was published in 2013. And we launched The Story Mill to bring storytelling into business. That’s where the story begins….
