“We need to rebalance the content of our newspapers, TV, radio and social media. This is an ambitious initiative to start tilting stories in the right direction - and I’m supporting it!”

“The quality of storytellers was mind blowing. Each one was an utterly inspiring call to action……lots for me to think about in the next chapter of my life.”

Katharine Edwards, BBC

“It is an amazing platform for social change. Not only did it give us a platform to tell our story, the team behind it pushed it into the mainstream media enabling us to gain funding to support the countless young people in our communities. ”

Simeon Moore, DatsTV, Being the Story Speaker

“Thank you so much for a hugely inspirational day. Spellbound - storytelling at its most powerful.”
