PRICE DROP As Covid19 lockdowns are severely affecting peoples income worldwide, I am halving my usual online prices. To do that, I have expanded the group size from 10 to 30 participants. However, if there is demand for a group of 10 for those who can manage AUD$120, I can offer a second class if enough people request it.*
APRIL- MAY GROUP SIZE: 30 participants*
PRICE PER PARTICIPANT: AUD $70 Includes being sent a link to the recording of each session and tailor made lists of resources according to the interest of the group.
RECORDINGS ONLY PRICE: AUD $30 For those unable to attend the online course, but who wish to receive the recordings. You’ll get a link to the video recording of the session emailed to you afterward, as well as the resources that get sent to participants in response to their particular questions and interests.
In these unprecedented times of Covid19, mass spikes in demand for internet can cause disruptions. If for some reason I can’t deliver all five sessions, I will reschedule or give a partial refund according to the number of sessions missed. Where the recording is successful, I can send a recording to participants whose connection fails temporarily.

Since the workshop my understanding about using story to spark people’s interest, and even shift their perspective has strengthened and grown. Jenni’s encouraging way of teaching allowed us to transform our own stories. If we are to create the change needed to protect our natural world, connecting with one another through story is the only way we will do it.
Just wanted to say thanks so much for the workshop on Saturday. I really enjoyed it. You are such a good and natural facilitator who knows your content so well because you live it. Thanks for creating such a lovely atmosphere and sparking many interesting insights and learnings for me.
In August 2017, I participated in a storytelling workshop facilitated by Jenni Cargill-Strong. The event was both insightful and inspiring and gave me the confidence to experiment with new ways to share information and encourage participation in Landcare. In October 2017 I was selected as a speaker at the NSW Landcare Conference in Albury. I mustered the courage to apply my newfound storytelling skills and methodology through my delivery. The presentation was extremely successful with multiple people approaching me afterward commenting on the presentation style as engaging and refreshing. Thanks to Jenni I have now found my style and my confidence to present to large audiences and trust that my stories will embed in peoples memory.
