Transformational Storytelling

“Your dedication played a pivotal role in the success of the retreat, contributing significantly to the reinvigoration and alignment of our team.”

- Chief Economist

The challenge

Our brief was to help a global group of senior economists with a technical background – used to working with spreadsheets and scenarios – to become more confident to tell stories of the future and to inspire their audiences to make transformational changes, particularly as regards new energy.

The outcome

The retreat provided the chance for a far-flung global team to come together to think, enjoy one another’s company, connect and take steps towards new ways of working. The client valued the excellent faculty, insightful discussions and smooth event coordination.  According to the Chief Economist, the retreat reinvigorated the team and bolstered team alignment.

Our approach

On the campus of Berkeley in California we brought together storytellers of the past, present and future from innovators and AI academics, First Nation speakers and those who are expert in the craft of storytelling.  The retreat provided the chance for a global team to come together to think, enjoy one another’s company and take steps towards new ways of working.

Leveraging a stimulating setting

We took advantage of the stimulating environment at Berkeley to draw on the intellectual resources of the University and the delights of the campus.

Connecting and collaborating

The programme was designed as a retreat so the social side of connecting for a far-flung senior team was as important as the exposure to new ideas and practices.  

We co designed with the sponsors who were involved throughout and provided a valuable sounding board for our design thinking.

Provocation and learning

The delivery and format was varied through the retreat – from workshops and discussions, walks, to intimate dinners and the chance for reflection.

Your efforts in securing excellent external speakers, skilfully coordinating events and fostering insightful discussions were invaluable.”

Our insights

The walks through the campus provided valuable synchronous time for team members to connect. The setting worked with the grain of the learning and amplified it.

“Our close partnership with the sponsors helped us to design in a bespoke and relevant way throughout.”
