Gcina Mhlophe is South Africa’s best known story-teller. Storytelling has become a popular business medium for conferences and seminars and Gcina is a master at creating stories to complement business themes.
Gcina maintains storytelling is the information technology of yesteryear. “For as long as there have been people in the world, there have been stories – long before all the great respectable sciences were known to us.”
After a business brief, Gcina then creates her stories around the conference’s objectives or a special event’s theme. Story messages can vary from teamwork and managing change to complacency and negativity.
Storytelling has taken Gcina to all corners of the World and she is a favourite choice for visiting overseas conference delegates. Give your next function a “Touch of Africa” by inviting Gcina to weave her magic into your programme.
