A well received StoryTeller presentation and workshop at the Euroguidance Conference in Vienna
Euroguidance Austria hosted the conference “Lifelong Guidance in a dynamic labour market: to achieve, to facilitate, to empower”.
StoryTeller partner BBRZ had been invited to organize a method table there en to prepare a workshop. Ingrid Pammer of BBRZ invited Peter Frühmann (Storybag) to join forces and facilitate a workshop around storytelling, based on our project’s methodological background and narrative techniques.
Quote from the organizer (who had also particpated), speaking also for the participants: “Thank you so much for the wonderful workshop. I thought it was very inspiring and with a lot of takeaways for myself. I heard the same things from all participants.” One of our participants was Alison Crabb, Head of Unit “Skills and Qualifications” of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of the European Commission , who had given an interesting key note on the most current strategy development within Europe, among it the “Upskilling Pathways”-strategy and the “European Pillar of Social Rights”.

Successful Train-The-Trainer for StoryTeller in Limavady
Our “Working with Stories” took place in Limavady, Northern-Ireland in the first week of October. And it is not the end, we still have an interesting and inspiring journey ahead of us.
The training and the evaluation of this activity made us realise even more what a complex topic the project is addressing. Transferring the experience gained and the knowledge acquired to the national piloting experiences in a variety of different settings of working with people at risk will be taking us on an interesting journey in the next weeks.

They realized that it had had a strong effect on collaboration and helping the other with his/her story. Working together to get a clear picture of a future story of the individual (with some surprising stories of new entrepreneurship) and telling these stories was an exhilarating finale.
