Finding great stories

*THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT* Here’s a story Steven Spilberg should know about: Irena Sendler is ‘the female Schindler’. A Polish nurse, Sendler smuggled approximately 2,500 Jewish children out of Warsaw and, with the exception of diplomats who issued visas, Sendler saved more Jews than any other individual during the Holocaust.

So, how do we find more stories like Irena’s? How do we come across mind-blowing narratives that will move and entertain? That will make you laugh, or cry – or both?

This month we’ll have a panel of expert story-tellers. Whether it’s podcasts, branded content, film or VR experiences, our panelists will discuss what makes a good story, how to find one and how to keep people begging for more.

Come to this free event and binge on how to create irresistible content.
