Unlock the power of storytelling

Storytelling has the power to inspire, attract and build trust. And, most importantly, storytelling has the power to connect you with the right audiences and convert them to long-term customers.

How? By bringing what you do and how you do it to life through real-life customer success stories. Demonstrating what you offer and how it transforms your customer’s day-to-day.

Designed to give you hands-on storytelling knowledge, this workshop will teach you what stories to tell when, how to tell these stories, and get real-life practice with a storytelling expert.

Today is the day to tell your story. Unlock the power of your story and transform your business.

Your storytelling workshop trainer: Manesh

Marketing Strategist – Brand Storyteller – Filmmaker

I believe everyone has a story to tell. Yes – even you reading this! Learning how, when and where to tell your story will transform your business, help you attract the right audiences, build trust, and improve your bottom line.

My storytelling superpower started in film and television. After creating award-winning content for a number of series, I took everything I learnt and founded a full-service digital agency.

While I loved working with some big-hitting brands across Australia and the Asia Pacific, I discovered my passion was storytelling and guiding small and medium businesses to better ways to tell their story. This storytelling obsession led to the creation of Catalyst Content, with an audience-focused, human approach to content.

When I’m not weaving together stories you can find me in Hawthorn, hitting tennis balls with my Francophile daughters Ash and Serena (not their real names, of course!).

I can’t wait to meet you at an upcoming storytelling session and help you unlock the full power of your story.

Let’s step into your story together.
