Storytelling skills are essential for anyone involved in the media or marketing, and they’ve now become critical in personal and corporate branding. Many people have basic skills in sharing their stories through social media, however, they don’t know how to standout, engage their audience and build community. Learning to produce creative and engaging content is an individual journey that is enhanced by intuitive, engaging instructors. We have a wonderful cast of just those types of leaders available to guide you through courses, workshops, talks, and corporate training.
StoryToGo was started by three educators and industry media makers – Kevin Ribble, Erica Hargreave, and Lori Yearwood. We have taught and built a variety of cross-platform storytelling courses at Colleges and Universities across Canada; sat on the advisory boards for new programs in digital, contemporary and transmedia. At BCIT, Kevin was the driving force behind a new Associate Certificate in Cross-Platform Storytelling and Certificate in Contemporary Media.
By clicking on the link above, you will find the current post-secondary courses that Erica (with the help of Lori) and Kevin teach, along with those of a few of our colleagues.
Erica, Kevin, and Lori, are available to give talks and lead workshops. By clicking on the link above, you will see a sampling of the types of topics you can book us to speak on, as well as a taste of some of the talks that we have given in the past.
To better serve the specific needs of larger organizations, such as member organizations, film commissions, tourism boards, hotel chains, school boards, franchises, … etc. we will tailor-make courses for you that meet your specific needs and get your community working together on your storytelling initiatives. Ideally, these courses will be used to help you grow your community and the engagement within it, and help you to build story assets. As a part of this, we can even build a storytelling campaign for you with participants in the course. These courses can be run in-person, remotely online, or through a combination of in-person workshops and remote support post or in-between workshops.
