Power of Stories

5 Mar 2014 | Workshops

Moya Sayer-Jones is one of Australia’s leading experts on story but she has a rather strange job title: she’s a Story Activist.

In February, Volunteering Auckland in partnership with Unitec invited Moya to ‘activate’ story possibilities in our own organisations via a 4 hour workshop called “The Power of Story”. This was an inspirational (and sold-out) workshop focussed on how to use our stories to win hearts, change minds, build reputation and strengthen connections in communities.

Moya works mainly with NFP’s and government organisations and like any good story activist should be, she’s passionate about making the most of the stories that we hear and make every day. (Watch out: she’ll try to make you into a SA too!)

Moya is returning to NZ later in the year: we’ll keep you posted about her workshops.
