Will Storr is an award-winning journalist and bestselling author. His work has been published internationally in titles including The New Yorker, Esquire, The Sunday Times and The Guardian. He also works as a ghostwriter, and has authored top ten bestselling books for major public figures.

He has reported from the civil war in South Sudan, the narco ganglands of Guatemala and the remote Aboriginal communities of Australia. The New Statesman has called him a ‘magnificent reporter’ while The Independent has called him a ‘versatile, imaginative, committed long-form journalist… a talented, ambitious writer.’

Will Storr is not only an expert storyteller. He’s also the author of a unique and hugely popular storytelling programme. The Science of Storytelling is based on insights from psychology and neuroscience and regularly sells out wherever he takes it. He has been invited to speak about storytelling all over the world, from Bangkok to Lisbon to Istanbul to the European Parliament.

Whether you’re a marketeer or branding specialist who wants to persuade and change behaviour, a leader who wants to inspire, an educator who wants to teach lessons that stick or simply a writer who wants to improve your craft, Storr’s programme will give you a deeper understanding of exactly how story can transform what you do.

Storytelling is a global skill that can be applied to so many aspects of our personal and professional lives. Not only can it change the way you go about your business, it can change the way you live your life.

Recently Will Storr released a book called Selfie: How the West Became Self-Obsessed. The Financial Times called it ‘electrifying’, the Evening Standard called it ‘brilliant’ and The Sunday Times said it was ‘approaching genius’. In 2019 he also released The Science of Storytelling, published by William Collins.
