When we speak to people that we know or just met, quite often there is a desire to share their stories.
We’re inspired by the conversation & throughout the year we hear stories with parallel themes. The times, places & events that occurred are entirely different, but the emotional peaks and valleys are undeniably similar.
Hence the concept of ‘themes’ for our VoiceStory Live show was born!
The themes we have in the pipeline are engaging & we can’t wait to share them with the world.
12 themes, 72 speakers & countless moments of laughter, joy & tears!
2019 is going to be full of surprises for both VoiceStory & the community at large.
Join us. Won’t you?
