Lucy’s storytelling training did two important things; provided the team with a practical skill and confidence to use in their work and because it was relaxed and enjoyable it also built and strengthened relationships across different teams which is really important after working remotely for so long. Lucy is a fantastic trainer, who is able to translate her considerable knowledge into a fascinating and enriching session.
