I regularly find myself talking to people about the difference between story-telling and story-making. Here is my take. The former is an inherently human activity that helps us derive meaning of the world and our place in it. The latter is how we actually transform our inner and outer circumstances. Story-making is where the rubber hits the road and we are asked to walk our talk, in order to manifest new possibilities and opportunities. This only happens we commit and say ‘yes’ to new life experiences.

“You must tell the story that unites”
It is a journey that began before I was born. One that has taken me over 6 years to write, re-write, weave & alchemize. It’s a labour of love that I tried to walk away from several times, only to pick it back up again – compelled by a story that wanted to be told.
A few years ago, I found myself standing on stage in front of hundreds of women at a mentoring conference in London. We had just completed a visioning exercise to bring to life our biggest dream……and had then been asked to multiply it by 10! Now – I can dream pretty big when I want to. Beyond Human Stories was born from one of the biggest dreams that I have ever dared to breathe life into. So when I was asked to multiply this big dream by 10, it blew open my narrative boundaries. It made me think on a completely new level what I deemed to be possible. That day I made an oath to co-create a global storytelling platform that redefines what it means to be human.
