Sue Hollingsworth has been performing and teaching storytelling for over 20 years. She is an acclaimed, internationally recognised workshop leader as well as regularly performing programmes of both traditional and biographical stories to adults. She is Director of the Centre for Biographical Storytelling, a Founding Member of the Centre for Narrative Leadership, a Founder of the International School of Storytelling, Patron of the Amari Storytelling Project in Crete and a Consultant to Seiba Storytelling in Istanbul. She is co-author of the best-selling book The Storyteller’s Way: Sourcebook for Inspired Storytelling (2012) and is currently completing another book on telling true life stories.
Sue runs workshops and performs all over the world. In 2016 she left the International School of Storytelling where she had been based for 22 years and refocussed her work on the telling of true life stories. In 2017 she established the Centre for Biographical Storytelling which is a meeting place and source of inspiration for those working with personal stories and storytelling in the fields of performance, personal development, therapy and leadership. At the heart of the Centre is a worldwide community of registered organisations and individuals who offer courses, trainings and coaching in this area.
Although Sue still performs, coaches and offers public courses, she now also focusses on supporting emerging and developing storytelling organisations and communities as a Mentor, Consultant and Patron.
