We take a fun, trauma-informed and strengths based approach to helping folk communicate their message authentically and effectively.  We help people find out what they want to share, who they will share it with and then work out how they do so in a personal, confident and informed way.

We work with staff teams, volunteers and individuals with a particular experience in helping people share their stories of lived experience.   

Our Skills Training includes:

  • Presentations

  • Persuasive Advocacy

  • Media Interviews

  • Pitching

We bring a deep understanding and experience from across private, public and third sector work to help you and your team create a strategic approach to your message which will not only improve your communications but also your ability to connect with those who support you and those whom you wish to work with and for.

We work with groups, senior leadership teams and boards to help them plan their approach to getting their communications heard, internally and externally.

Specialist support includes:

  • Development of communications strategy

  • Branding strategy 

  • Crisis communication planning and response

  • Core message development

  • Vision, values and purpose support


Encouraging teams to talk, listen, hear and understand each other can sometimes be easier said than done.  Good communication, with opportunities to listen, understand and engage lies at the heart of facilitation.  Using a wide variety of techniques, we offer a bespoke and personal service to ensure that your time together is productive, that people are heard and that connections and deepened.

We work with people who want to engage and connect with each other within organisations, across sectors and amongst people who know they want to understand more about each other.

Events supported include:

  • Team Days

  • Conferences

  • Board and senior management sessions

  • On-line work


We have considerable experience in working closely with individuals to help them find, hone and share the messages that matter to them and the causes they are part of.  Whether they are leaders, volunteers or folk whose lived experience informs others, we offer a personalised service that can inspire, inform and change the work that you do.

We works with everyone and anyone who wants to understand how they can use their skills as they move onwards in their lives, careers and callings. 


While we love hearing other people's stories, our founder Ishbel Smith has provided key note speeches in a wide variety of events.  Always seeking to capture the heart of the message of the occassion, she brings a creative, engaging and story filled approach to this element of our work.
