Storytelling: Why every business needs a Shanakee.

Thu, 24 November 2022, 08:30 – 09:30 GMT

Since time began, humans have shared stories. Today, businesses have cottoned on to the power of storytelling. To win customers. Inspire staff. And lift their business above the noise of the competition. Join us at the incredible Dublin Liberties Distillery in the heart of Dublin, for Storytelling: Why every business needs a Shanakee.

“Shanakees” are traditional Irish storytellers and the custodians of history for centuries in Ireland. Inspired by this, we’ll look at what organisations can do to keep their stories alive.

To kick us off we’ll chat with Hugh Cooney, artist, comedian and folklore enthusiast. Known for his podcast “Folklord” Hugh will regale us with tales of modern day folklore, all told using the ancient Irish tradition of storytelling.

Owen Eastwood has been described as one of the leading Performance Coaches on the planet. He has worked with some of the most elite teams and groups in the world, including Gareth Southgate’s England Football team, the Command Group of NATO, and the South African Cricket Team. At the heart of his work is “belonging,” the ancient art of togetherness which all begins with finding your identity story.

Our final guests have taken arguably Ireland’s greatest ever story and turned it into a business. The Perfect Pint Tour takes visitors to iconic Irish pubs in a quest to find the “perfect” pint of Guinness®. Dave Beirne and Keith McGovern will share the inspiration behind their business and the stories they tell to bring it alive!

Join us at Dublin’s hidden gem of a venue for an event packed with tips and insights plus all our usual Thursday Brunch tomfoolery.
