Let Monica tell you the story of Stories that Stir...

On 2nd Jan 2019, I woke up and wished it was December already.
19 years of running my PR agency, resulted in me wanting the year to be over before it even started.
In that moment, I knew there was something wrong. I didn’t want to wish my life away!
The forced 2020 lockdowns, gave me the headspace to dream up something new.
“Why don’t we start a storytelling event?” my husband Joram said.
I got goosebumps, "Let's do it!"
Our vision came to life with our first event in Feb 2022.
Six people shared a raw and personal story, linked to LOVE.
People told me, "it's the best event I've ever been to!"
By year's end, I closed my PR agency to focus on the Global Stories that Stir™ Movement.
We're on a mission to facilitate human connection and healing through storytelling.
Our events break down barriers, stir conversation and inspire positive change.
We’re seeding Stories that Stir events all over the world to impact millions!
I’m happy to say, I’m no longer wishing my life away.

What's 'Stories that Stir™' all about?

The Stories that Stir™ event concept is designed to break down barriers, stir conversation and inspire positive change.

At each event, six people share a raw and personal story linked to a theme. Themes are juicy, emotive topics such as FREEDOM, TRUTH, EXPECTATIONS, CONNECTION etc.

Audience members rave about how good it feels to spend a lovely evening, listening to other people’s funny, moving, and inspiring stories and how connected to humanity the event makes them feel.
