Move people forward with a narrative they can trust and believe in.
To get customers, team members or stakeholders to take a certain action, you must first win their trust. The most effective way to achieve this is by creating a narrative that they emotionally connect with.
I apply storytelling to communication and leadership to transform narratives and shape ideas. This helps individuals, companies and organisations to connect emotionally with their audience and deliver on their ambition for positive change.
Hi, I’m Natalia Alvarez.
I’m a former human rights lawyer and academic with more than two decades of experience in international advocacy and leadership training. I’ve worked for international organisations, governments, NGOs, universities, and companies, helping them to influence and persuade different actors to make change happen.
In this complex and interconnected world we need to bring diverse voices and ideas together to create solutions to real problems. To move forward, we need not only the right people in the room but also the right story.
WHAT I DO
1 to 1 for people with ambition for change.
Every time you write an email, make a sales pitch, do a presentation, or talk to your team you want them to understand something. You want your message to come through. But most of all, you want to ignite action.
To move people to take action, you must do more than simply getting them to understand the idea you are presenting. You need to make people feel something via a story that connects with them.
As an entrepreneur and founder, you might be struggling with bringing your ideas together to form a convincing narrative that can inform design, marketing, communication, customer experience or team development and resonate with your audience at the same time.
As a manager or leader in an organisation, you are looking to deepen your connection with your audience to deliver better results by improving how you present information and engage with people.
WHAT I DO
Training to make a difference.
People need to care about what they learn. If it doesn't make sense; if it doesn't fit into the way they see the world and what they want to achieve, they will sit down in the room and pretend to be listening. Nothing will change when the training finishes.
I teach how to apply story skills to communication for people who are ready to lead, engage and contribute.
My training is based on 3 pillars:
- We are here to help you improve how you communicate.
- The training is practical and interactive.
-When you leave, you'll have experienced a change in how you communicate, lead and connect with the people you work with.
If you want to capitalise on the transformational power of storytelling, book a call to discuss how I can help you.

WHAT I DO
Facilitation to create common and trusted narratives .
Organisations need to articulate narratives that embrace diversity, tolerate friction and create movement and impact if they want to succeed in this complex world. If you want to change the energy in the room, you need more than a rational and well-presented argument. To truly connect with your audience, you need a convincing story that resonates on an emotional level.
I work with companies and organisations that understand that the world has changed and stakeholder involvement is no longer a matter of box-ticking.
I help organisations create common narratives with stakeholders that align vision and purpose, open channels of communication and regenerate trust.
From communities to internal teams, I help you build a bridge in which dialogue and collaboration is possible.
