Storytelling has been around since the beginning of time, long before prehistoric man could utilize words to tell his stories; he would mime his epic tales of mammoth hunts, to the members of his clan, as they sat around the fire. Young and old would be totally captivated by the sounds and the gestures of the storyteller, as the shadows he created on the walls of the cave, would amplify the magnitude of his exploits. The leaders of these tribes had the power to inspire their people to move mountains.

Do you have any mountains to move?


"The one who tells the stories rules the world." 
Native American proverb from the Hopi

The art of storytelling is a collaborative dance between the storyteller and the listener. The storyteller's responsibility is to lead the listener to an imaginary world where everything is possible…or to inspire and motivate him with historical sagas…or even to take him to another dimension where a new paradigm of possibilities awaits him. Storytelling is a powerful tool, capable of creating change within individuals and enhancing their unique potentiality.

 Employees are fed up with PowerPoint presentations…they've got information coming out of their ears…what they need is a story that will inspire them take on new challenges, to change non productive behaviors, to revive their passions for their professions and to dream of participating in the success of their enterprise or organization.
