Your business is unique – and so are YOU! – but many founders struggle to clearly and confidently share their (personal) brand story with their audiences.

And with a neurodivergent brain, challenges like imposter syndrome as well as difficulties with interoception, memory and words can make it feel even MORE difficult to pick out the parts of our stories that are relevant, interesting and relatable to others.

In this workshop, you’ll discover why YOUR story matters, how to tell it, and how to get it out there to journalists.

Because, the good news is that storytelling is a skill you can learn!

In part one of this creative workshop, led by Roxy van der Post, you’ll understand:

  • The narrative framework
  • The pillars of storytelling
  • How to share your story impactfully


Once you’ve created your story, what do you do with it? How do you get it “out there” in a way that feels authentic?

In part two of the workshop, led by Greta Solomon, you’ll learn:

  • Dos and don’ts of pitching to magazines, newspapers, and podcasts
  • What makes an effective pitch
  • Six types of headlines and how to use them
  • How to create compelling openings and endings
  • How to piece together your pitch

The aim is to demystify the pitching process, so that you can contact journalists confidently and get your stories published.
