About this event

The future belongs to those who can tell their story. We’re here to help you tell yours with 5 Stories.

We’ve designed a 6-part brand storytelling programme for 12 amazing fashion businesses doing good in the world so they’re seen more, heard more and understood better. Why? Because we believe the world will be a better place with them in it.

The programme (in a nutshell):

Using the pioneering 5 stories methodology, you’ll complete the programme inspired and ready to tell your story in new, inventive ways. We’re here to celebrate you, encourage you and show you why your story matters. Want in? Join us.

  • Define your Empathy, Purpose, Origin, Product and Vision Stories
  • Get super clear on what you do – and how to talk about it
  • Gain more confidence when communicating with your customers
  • Create more sales, stronger communities and better aligned teams
  • Become a brand people care about and want to shout about

All this PLUS you can expect some special guests to inspire you with different, creative ways to use each of your 5 Stories in your everyday marketing.

  2. How to put your Purpose Story into practice

A little heads up:

After you get your ticket, you will receive an email from us with time slots for a 20 minute conversation with your workshop facilitator, Amanda. This is so we can better understand who you are, where you are and what you’re hoping to achieve. We also want to hear a bit about your story and why you believe more people need to hear it.

Get to know your workshop facilitator, Amanda Baker:

Amanda is the founder and creator of the 5 Stories methodology and she’s OBSESSED with helping founders and their businesses tell better brand stories.

In 2012, she raised some money for her fashion startup and three years later, it failed to reach product market-fit because she was communicating the wrong message to the wrong people.

This failure was the springboard into her fascination with building brands and understanding the stories behind businesses.

Over the years, she’s learned that A LOT of businesses struggle to communicate clearly, so she’s vowed to help the ones doing good in the world be seen and heard. She’s been building brands with 5 Stories ever since.

In her mind, businesses don’t need vision statements that only live in brand books. They need stories their teams and customers can rally around. They need 5 Stories.

Now, Amanda’s on a mission to make sure every purpose-driven business on the planet has access to her storytelling methodology. Why? Because the world really is a better place with them in it.

She’s helped hundreds of businesses of all shapes and sizes tell their stories better. Including, HANX, Ocean Bottle, Koru Kids, Cotton Comfort, Lone Design Club, Nimble, Soldo and many more. She’s the brand communications ‘Expert in Residence’ at the London Business School and she’s the brand storytelling mentor at Bethnal Green Ventures.

Some quotes from founders and marketers about the 5 Stories workshops:

“You have helped me believe in what I am doing again.’

“This has made me feel so much more confident in expressing the brand.”

“You’ve made me feel less alone.”

“I actually didn’t think about myself as a storyteller before!!! I always thought everyone else was a storyteller but not me.”

“The workshops were well organized, with clear messages and actionable strategies that each attendee could walk away with. Their energy and passion for storytelling is infectious!”

“The series of workshops were one of the most encouraging and inspiring online sessions I have ever attended! The 5 Stories framework allowed me to tap into my inner storyteller.”

“The workshops gave me the space to understand how I can use my stories to engage the customer. I left with the confidence to start telling my stories in different ways.”
