Event description
How do we tell sustainability stories which engage and inspire our audience?

About this Event

Join us to explore how we can unlock the power of stories to connect with those we seek to inspire and influence.

**We're very mindful that many of you are facing financial uncertainty at present. If that means you are unable to afford to pay, please do grab a free place to join us for this online event. For those who are able to pay, please buy a ticket as revenues from sales are essential to enable us to provide ongoing support. *

Do these times feel like the moment in history your organisation was created for? You just know you’re a small (yet important) cog in a colossal story of change that's needed to restore and heal this beautiful planet we call home? But you keep tying yourself up in knots when it comes to defining your story? A story that connects you with the world and is way too important to mess up.

And the simple truth is... your organisation has an important role to play in responding to the unfolding emergency and both your story and your purpose play a vital part. And the longer you sit back and do nothing the more likely your competitors will take that on and gain an edge. http://www.brandnewstoryhq.com/news/2019/10/31/tell-the-full-story/

We are being joined by two brilliant sustainability storytellers who will share their extensive learning, insights and experiences to help us explore this topic.

Dr Alexandra Jellicoe is a public health engineer and scientist. She has carried out research for the United Nations and worked with various aid agencies mitigating the effects of climate change on vulnerable populations.

She has lived and worked with remote indigenous tribes and small island developing states, communities whose homes have been lost or are currently under considerable threat.

She is also the founder of Monkey Wrench, a sustainable culture and lifestyle magazine. Follow her on twitter @alexjellicoe @MonkeyWrenchMag and instagram @alexandrajellicoe

Rachel Savage founder of Brand New Story has been immersed in stories since the mid 1990s when she was Deputy Editor for The Big Issue (South West). Since then she’s been a writer for Orange (UK and Global), The Environment Agency and Ecotricity.

In 2017, she founded Brand New Story with a mission to help ‘conscious’ organisations find their purpose and create a compelling story that supports it. A story that aligns them and their people with their customers, gives them differentiation (and a clear tone of voice) and instantly connects them with people on an emotional level. www.brandnewstory.co.uk @brandstoryqueen
