Why are

Stories so


We know that stories stick. According to Stanford Graduate School of Business Professor Jennifer Aaker, stories are up to 22 times more memorable than facts or figures alone. Our brains are wired to remember stories, and listening to our experts tell theirs can benefit your team in three significant ways.

Shaping Perceptions
When people listen to stories, they help them shape opinions about others and the world we live in. These stories can influence decisions, such as hiring someone, buying from them, or liking them. The stories you hear also impact how we feel about ourselves and others, which is vital for inclusion.
Capturing Attention
Stories naturally draw people in and make them pay attention. When someone shares a story, you are likelier to slow down and engage with their message, allowing us to understand their insights more deeply.
Inspiring Action
Stories have the power to move people and change behaviour. A compelling story can motivate us to take action, guiding us through an engaging journey that leads to conviction and change.

What Makes PepTalk Workshops Different?

Stories stick. It’s said that people remember stories 22 times better than facts alone. That’s why we designed our workshops to blend theory with real-world stories, offering engaging content rich in actionable insights.
How do we do this? PepTalk pairs an experienced facilitator with a real-world expert to deliver sessions beyond the keynote. Your leaders gain skills they can immediately apply, fostering genuine behaviour change.
