Thank you SO much for today’s session. It was fantastic. I thought the whole session had amazing energy and enthusiasm (from you and the members!). We have a group chat with all of the people who attended the session and it has been blowing up with lovely comments with people feeling very positive and saying they have learned so much.
I absolutely loved working with Robin and had a lot of fun and laughter. He realised my creativity and helped me to release it. It’s been so liberating to experiment and play with different aspects of creativity, and to build my confidence in my identity and what I value most in life.
The story telling workshop was really eye-opening. It really deconstructed my assumptions about what makes a good story – and even what a story is about. Both Jojo and Robin created a safe space for everyone to feel confident in their vulnerability, stepping out and trying new things. The exercises were really insightful and helped to give me the tools to construct a more compelling, thoughtful and original story in the future. I learnt a lot about myself, grew in confidence and built stronger relationships with colleagues – and all in half a day! I couldn’t recommend enough.
Jojo’s and Robin’s enthusiasm was infectious and they made you feel so comfortable to be able to tell your story. It was absolutely brilliant!!

I found the storytelling workshop useful on so many levels. Not only did it cover the nuts and bolts – the art – of finding and crafting a good story, it included public speaking skills and confidence building, and was a brilliant team building session. Jojo and Robin themselves brought a perfect combination of expertise, experience, fun and constructive engagement to the day, helping people to push outside their comfort zones and holding a safe space for us to experiment and try new things. It was a game changer of a workshop and has left us feeling inspired to properly integrate what we learned into our work.
The content was pitched at just the right level and the workshop was well structured. Jojo and Robin were very sensitive, astute and flexible to the needs of individuals, the group and our organisational context, and very receptive to people’s thoughts and concerns. Whilst some of the exercises seemed very ambitious and terrifying at first, Jojo and Robin created a very supportive and trusting environment. The progress from the first exercise to the final storytelling was remarkable and I think we all came away with a great sense of achievement and new found confidence, huge admiration for our colleagues, and fired up to think a lot more about how we incorporate what we’ve learned into our daily work. Without a doubt one of the best training sessions I’ve done in a work environment and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Robin coached me for my talk at The Story Party and his I could not have done such a good job without his help. He worked with me to get my vague idea into focus and to create the narrative thread that held it together and led the audience through. His excellent suggestions, gentle prompts, his support and enthusiasm got me up to another level and led me to produce something that I am rather proud of. After working with Robin, I have a whole new concept of how to put a talk together and a much higher standard to maintain.
Before I came to you I had absolutely no idea how I was going to pull this off! The speech was absolutely perfect. Waiting to deliver it was like when you buy someone a really good present and can’t wait for them to unwrap it.
Although I am an experienced speaker, I learnt a great deal from my time with Robin. Especially how to structure my talk and to speak without PowerPoint.
Robin is immensely refreshing, practical, insightful and fun. His work with me greatly enhanced my business and led to increased sales and an overall expansion in my business. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone with an open mind who is willing to expand their personal and corporate horizons – he is a gem.
