“Storytelling in programs I worked on in the past was always an afterthought. Megan has helped me understand the importance of building the right narrative and scenario to fit the vision of my product. I was very impressed with how she facilitated workshops with my project team and found her methods of gathering insights and turning them into scenarios engaging and thoughtful. “
Megan brings an energy and overt love for her work to her workshops, which creates a level of learning and enjoyment rarely seen. I was a participant in one of her workshops and got so much out of it that I engaged her for our team.
Megan has the capacity to gather threads and weave a story; a good story. Her ability to listen and hear and then articulate what is important, really important, is nothing short of amazing. As a new business, the narrative strategy for my marketing provided me with a solid marketing tool which gave me confidence moving forward. Three years on, I regularly come back to the plan for clarity and confirmation that I’m on track with future planning.
It is possible to make an authentic, provoking and entertaining story from anything – even an alcohol harm minimisation project. The Narrative Strategy has helped me understand the importance of using story to help create culture change. An authentic story makes people want to be a part of the experience and they start to see the narratives in their own lives.
Spendlove and Lamb helped our committee identify their common purpose and key message, which individual members then built their personal story around. We have used this to tell stories to 20 different internal teams in our organisation, resulting in a massive shift in attitudes and support for what we are trying to change. Our narrative strategy has gotten everyone on the same page and identifying what’s interesting about our story or message. Cutting through the ordinary to find the extraordinary.
Megan’s passion for storytelling was evident in all of the workshops she ran with us for the Telstra Foundation. She helped even the most reluctant participants become successful presenters and communicators over the course of only a few days. We look forward to collaborating with her in the future!

“Megan has a fantastic ability to break down the essential ingredients of what makes a compelling and engaging story, and provide the tools and confidence to enable others to become storytellers. It was a pleasure working with her!”
Our narrative strategy session really helped me shape the story we told in our writing and founder videos for Youli
I can’t wait to make this come alive with animation too!
Working with Spendlove and Lamb developing a narrative strategy was an extremely insightful process for my coaching business, The Main Protagonist
. She focused on getting what was already on the inside of me, out and expressed in a professional way. I felt that my voice online has become more authentic – less “trying hard” on my part.
I found the tactic of using stories to be very helpful and as a coach, I find it makes my audience respond more honestly as well.
We can waste a lot of time, doing things the wrong way, and wonder why we don’t get the response we want. So I highly recommend getting an expert like Megan to show you how to do it well
