What people say about Anjali

"I met Anjali last year when we had planned to try some innovative ways to solve our business communication challenges. I had many questions going in to that session with Anjali. She started discussions with a video of a great brand story and asked us WHY IS THE BRAND TELLING A STORY? Immediately all my doubts, questions were removed and I knew I was at the right place. Later on she introduced techniques and other stuff on story telling in a very simple and genuine way.

After working with Anjali, I realized that story telling can be learned and one can become proficient at it. I applied the technique I learnt from her during many business and people situations – it feels wonderful seeing the instant results."

"I read a few books on this subject but attending the storytelling workshop provided me with a structured learning opportunity. I lead a fast growing business and as I started to put the tools and techniques into practice, I began to see how effective storytelling was in establishing an intense and personal connection with the audience…customers, employees and anyone in my network. I use the techniques to help me build trust, get people to buy into my vision and drive behavior that will lead to successful business outcomes.

Anjali's work is very structured and she makes the environment very easy and fun to practice. By working with Anjali you will also learn that practising storytelling often and keeping them simple and authentic have a great impact on the audience. You will soon realize that storytelling is not just a perfect anti-dote to death by powerpoint but also a life-skill!"

Her effective facilitation of the workshop earned her positive feedback and high scores from our participants. Anjali always strives to be flexible and was able to tailor the content and schedules to our requirements. She takes great care to ensure that her work is practical and not just theoretical.

"I am a communications specialist with a leading computer software brand. In 2016 we had to implement a major IT change within the business. We were worried because our workforce is large and complex. We wanted to equip our leaders with a compelling change story that they could tell their teams. It is then we met Anjali. Anjali helped us with building a change story that was very well received by our leaders. We achieved a very high NPS and equipped our leaders to tell the change story to not only excite the mind but also provide a route to the heart to want to change. We were delighted with the results, the level of engagement and Narrative’s ability to always find a better way achieving the desired outcome. I highly recommend Change Story as an essential element of any Change Management Strategy"

"We needed our top 50 sales people who are based globally to shift from selling information to selling insights . To achieve that we started working with Anjali. She is doing great work for us, the deep insights she bought to the table in relation to how Org. storytelling could transform our business were profound. Our sales team has seen shortened sales cycles and larger average deal size at the point of sale. What I liked best was that you are helping us discover the best in ourselves, you made suggestions, not commands."

"Your blogpost captures the essence of my struggle. I have been giving orientation talks on MET ( Medical Emergency Team ) every 3 to 4 months to batches of doctors rotating into CGH, and have been doing this for the last 5 years. The task made more challenging since no other hospital in Singapore has a rapid response system like our medical emergency team. In the past, I concentrated on facts and instructions brought forth by my slides, and can frequently see the disinterested faces in the audience. Earlier this year, I focused on a TED-style storytelling (using a failure story and a success story) format to deliver the content, rather than too many slides or info overload. I could see emotions in peoples faces and I felt that we've connected, in fact there was applause at the end of it for the first time. I now hope my message translates into the culture change we advocate in CGH, and more lives saved."

"I attended Narrative’s Strategic Storytelling Workshop recently. One of the most interesting parts of the workshop was the section on Data Storytelling. We took real life examples of our current work and used the strategies taught by Anjali to deliver a compelling story and captivate the audience. It was evident to us that the key concepts shared were valuable and practical. I learnt a practical, logical and effective way to Data Storytell which I can now use in my workplace everyday."

Initially, the business was focussed on providing trainings and workshops on Business Storytelling to help business professional make their messages stick and as a result achieve better business outcomes.

However, as we did repeat work for our clients. Our clients started to notice that we were helping them beyond their training and development needs.

This was the start of a unique consulting arm of Narrative.  Why unique? Because unlike a consulting firm we don't just consult, we hand hold our clients through the change.

Some of the consulting projects that we have worked on are Change Management Storytelling. Building a Brand Ambassador Storytelling Program for world's no. Memory business under our Storytelling for Presentations offerings. Creating, Directing and Producing Video Stories for worldwide leader in IT and Networking Business under our Video Storytelling offerings.

Today, the business has morphed in to a successful story practice with two strong arms, Business Storytelling Training and Workshops and Business Storytelling Consulting.
