Internationally acclaimed storyteller Tim Ralphs has worked for many years with teachers, university lecturers and researchers to explore ways that storytelling can support and contribute to teaching. In this workshop, Tim explores creativity, spontaneity, confidence and ways to make sure what you say lodges in the mind of your listeners for years to come.

 About the Trainer: Tim Ralphs

Tim Ralphs is a storyteller and active exponent of narrative in art. He also works as a public engagement consultant where he focuses on connecting academic researchers with non-specialists. His storytelling is rooted in the oral tradition: the craft of a speaker weaving language and gesture to entrance an audience and bring a tale to life. Tim Ralphs gained much acclaim at “The Young Storyteller of the Year” competition in 2007 and was a British Award for Storytelling Excellence winner in 2012. He has performed everywhere from majestic Teutonic castle at Alden Biesen in Belgium, to the muddy Shropshire fields of The Festival at the Edge, to the sophisticated theatres of Soho and The Barbican. His audiences find him equally captivating whether they are partaking of some cake in a café, sitting spellbound around a fire in the woods, or dancing furiously while he lays down his words over a frenzy of experimental rock.
