'I know it's called a 'corporate story' but I don't think that the story should sound corporate in this day and age. The corporate storytelling workshop felt like a warm bath in that respect. It gave us so much insight into how you can achieve that, what you shouldn't do and lots of practical tips as well. It helped us make a fantastic step forward.'Make an appointment
