What’s been nice about this whole journey is how naturally Megan pulled out the core aspects of who I am. I can articulate my personality without sounding like everybody else. In the past, I’d struggled with replicating other aesthetics. But this is my personality.
Here are some testimonials from the people we have worked with!
“I appreciated the thinking space the process with Megan created for me. Her process and prompts helped me to clarify my work in a way I wouldn’t have been able to do on my own. I valued the time to ‘think out loud’ and be pushed to think more deeply about what was coming up. It offered a lot of value, not only for the content we created together but overall how I position my work.”
Seanna Davidson, the systems school
“Especially when encountering resistance to something, you can counteract that alongside the usual community engagement to get people on board with the change. If you want to shape the outcome, you have a better chance of doing that through the story.”
Gillian Saxon, Change and Engagement Lead, Victorian Public Sector Commission
“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. “
Arnold Florendo, Digital Product Manager, Movember
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.
Cam Birrell, WorkSafe Victoria
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.
Angie Chong, The Humble Dumpling
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.
Davey Wilson, Health Promotion Officer, City of Whittlesea
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.
Virginia E. Richardson, Disability Community Inclusion Metroaccess, Mornington Penisula Shire
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!
