The Four Elements of Compelling Storytelling with Sheridan Voysey

Few things engage an audience more powerfully than a story. Tell a tale and people will lean in, read and watch longer, become emotionally engaged, and be moved to action.

Story works across all media because story is the language of humanity. In this seminar we will explore the four elements of compelling storytelling. These elements work for a 30-second commercial, a 60-second radio link or a 6-minute interview, right up to feature articles, keynote talks, documentaries and books.


Media Ethics - Facilitated discussion with sally bundock, BBC

In this facilitated discussion, we cut right to the heart of why Christians in Media exists, and ask the question why is it hard to tackle the challenges we face as Christians working in the media industry? Which ethical dilemmas do we face on a daily basis and how should we approach them not only as people of faith but also people who want to be good at our jobs?

10:15am | Tea and coffee break

10:45am | Session stream #2 - choice of two

Work-life Balance & Avoiding Burnout with Action Jackson

Is work-life balance possible? In a world and an industry of tremendous competition and self-doubt, how do we maintain our focus, our faith and achieve our life and career goals? In this workshop we'll look at the route to burnout, how to stay on fire, the power of a dream team, how to make a remarkable impact in your part of the industry, and the difference between grace and performance.

11:45am | Prayer, closing remarks and networking

Price of your ticket includes tea, coffee, water and pastries on arrival, plus refreshments during the break.

We look forward to seeing you there!
