Business Storytelling

Storytelling in business is a hot topic. But what is storytelling? What’s the difference between a formal text and a story? And most importantly: how do you engage the people reading it?
This two-hour workshop is packed with creative assignments and interesting group discussions, introducing you to storytelling and showing you how to apply it to your business.
This workshop is online and is offered to you in collaboration with Zoku.

Meditate & Write

Writing daily helps you let go and get rid of stress. It unveils valuable insights and slows you down. Meditation moves you into an intuitive state of mind, making you write from a deeper level.
Blending these two forces gives you a powerful tool to brainstorm, get unstuck or help you move forward in many more ways than you can imagine.
In this intimate workshop, we do exactly as the title suggests: we meditate, and then we write.
I give you clear instructions so you can let go, exhale and make yourself at home while your pen does all the work.
This workshop is hosted by Zoku & The story Lounge.

Travel Writing

When I travelled through Peru, I taught travel writing workshops in the hostels I stayed in. These were such a success I decided to continue doing them after my return to Holland, and I carry on giving one wherever my travel bug takes me.
I now organise this workshop together with the amazing Zoku.

In 2 hours, you’ll learn how to stand out from the crowd with your travel pieces and make a lasting impact on the people reading them. Lots of writing exercises and laughs are guaranteed.
The emphasis is on creativity so anyone can join!

I didn't know what to expect, whether I would feel uncomfortable or under pressure. However, Talia made the environment super friendly to make us feel at ease and comfortable in our writing. The exercises used were super helpful, fun and useful. I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to develop their skills, be more creative or just try something new.
