The power of stories

Alex Story Well

Alex has been researching, telling and working with stories from all over the world for nearly two decades across health, business and education sectors.

Constantly surprised and delighted by their power to connect with people from a wide range of backgrounds, stories offer a unique way to express and explore all kinds of themes and issues including some of life’s more challenging ones.

An appropriate and well told story can make an occasion:

  • Relaxing and enjoyable
  • Memorable
  • Thought provoking and meaningful

Young, middling or old, stories are for everyone – bringing wisdom, healing and wonder into our lives.


Why Stories

“The purpose of the storyteller is not tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.”     (Brandon Sanderson)
