BASE Storytelling Awards

There's still time to register your vote for the British Awards for Storytelling Excellence (BASE). Go to http://www.storyawards.org.uk and look and listen to the many wonderful nominees in a variety of categories.

I'm pleased to be included in the nominees for the Best Community Project for my film (co-produced with Paul Maguire) "Our Story: the story of the Christian Fellowship of Healing". This was our first storytelling film project together although we are currently planning another featuring a couple of charities working with children and young adults.

If you are interested in exploring your 'inner storyteller', please get in touch with me. I offer both 1-to-1 and small group story coaching and mentoring (in Edinburgh and area). I also offer Skype sessions for those further away.

In the meantime, I wish you meaningful stories and ears to listen.
