“Everyone has their story. Everyone. And that includes me”. That was the key takeaway from one of the wonderful participants in the #StorytellingWithPuck week for 2021. They weren’t alone with these feelings. From the 140+ stories that people shared across the week, not one was boring. Each story made us feel. Many of the participants this year asked us to find a way of continuing the Storytelling with Puck feeling. We couldn’t deny that request so here, for you, and for us, is the Storytelling with Puck Podcast.
One final story for Series 1. This one is the story of stories. From childhood memories to dreams, to worlds that are not as they seem, this episode highlights the power of connecting through stories. We're saying farewell but we'll be back soon with Series 2.
Open, honest, ready to assess problems and find solutions, that’s what it’s all about for this week’s guest, Nicola Richardson because in her words: “you don’t want flannel”. Her business and leadership lessons have come throughout her life but they all started in her childhood working in a café.

A life of theorising, a life of learning, a life of understanding. Is this science or stories? Well, maybe they're more similar than we think.
