First Story has teamed up with award-winning writers Roland Chambers and Ben Faccini to offer businesses the benefits of our creative-writing workshops. Whether for team training sessions, corporate awaydays or partner meetings, First Story’s writer-led workshops offer a unique way to build confidence and enhance team spirit. They treat writing as a craft and as a vehicle for reflection and self-expression. Participants leave with a deeper empathy for their colleagues, a greater faith in the value of their own experience, and the ability to communicate clearly and persuasively.

Our creative-writing workshops for business address:

  • Confidence and team-building
  • Communication and collaboration
  • Core values and messages
  • Capturing an audience through-story telling

First Story can provide one-off workshops or a series of sessions to extend impact, for small groups such as senior management, or larger teams.

‘Surprisingly thought provoking. Even the simple exercises (for example a 6-word auto-biography) taught me a lot about some colleagues I thought I knew pretty well. The form of the workshop encouraged a very different lens from others I’ve used. The language we used was emotional and direct. I think it would be a terrific addition to our toolkit for team-building both internally and with clients, particularly when we are exploring change.’  Senior Partner, leading management consultancy firm

All profits from First Story’s creative-writing workshops for business support our core work fostering literacy, creativity and confidence among students in secondary schools serving low income communities.
