Professional Development

Story Studios Australia professional development courses offer unique and immersive opportunities that will enrich and upskill your team. With an engaging and insightful storytelling approach led by professional industry writers and business owners, the workshops are designed to captivate imaginations and stimulate a level of self exploration that will permeate passion, critical thinking, problem solving skills and empathy into every aspect of your career. Our professional development courses will take your organisation on a journey into character and use creative writing as a tool to gain real-world knowledge and understanding.

We can tailor custom professional development sessions according to your team’s needs and interests. Story is at the heart of all our courses, ensuring that the training is fun, explorative and resonates on a level that won’t be forgotten!

The sessions draw on examples from well known film, TV and literature to inspire a deeper understanding of creativity and the self. Teams will have the chance to collaborate and share, utilising exciting new tools and techniques and story-craft insights.



“Undertaking the Story and Self program reignited my passion for writing and storytelling. The storytelling structures and techniques taught gave me the confidence and ability to put my own ideas to the page and begin my own writing projects.”
