Sharing powerful stories

At, we are passionate about sharing stories that matter.

What started several years ago as a blog has grown into a wide-ranging project, telling powerful stories through a wide range of media including books and film, along with a podcast and an award-winning digital magazine that has made an impact on millions of lives worldwide.

We have also developed a wide range of our courses, coaching programmes and workshops, as well as live events.

Our Mission – Inspire, Inform, Transform.

In everything we do, our mission is simple: to inspire, inform and transform through the art of compelling storytelling.

As well as sharing incredible stories, we want to empower others to tell theirs as a force for positive change.
