Insights Into Storytelling for Charities
Kindly supported and hosted by Google
To kick off Social Media Week in London sounddelivery are hosting an event, putting a spotlight on storytelling, at Google office, Holborn. Our guests will be discussing with what storytelling means to them and their work, as well as providing us with insights into how to create a compelling story.
Our guests include:
Gideon Burrows, Writer and Author for the charity sector
In April 2012 Gideon was diagnosed with an incurable, inoperable brain tumour. Gideon was bound to start writing about his condition, but didn't want to write just 'another cancer blog'.
Instead, he began telling stories about two major things in his life: the brain tumour that will kill him, and the cycling that keeps him feeling alive. His blog is powerful and moving so please do read some of the posts before the event. www.bicyclesandbraintumours.co.uk
