Ep18 - Become a Better Storyteller with Jessica Jarlvi

Storytelling is a powerful form of communication. Stories are more impactful than facts. They get attention. They get remembered. They change perceptions. They change attitudes. People (and businesses) are making a serious effort to try and incorporate stories into their daily lives.

Jessica Jarlvi’s story is powerful. After winning the Montegrappa Prize in 2016 at the prestigious Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, Jessica published her psychological thriller books, ‘When I Wake Up’ and ‘What Did I Do?’ Fast forward a few short years, and Jessica went from being an aspiring author to an internationally acclaimed author and thought-leader who travels between UAE, UK, and USA, delivering keynotes and workshops. Although Jessica’s writing tends to be somewhat dark, Jessica is driven to inspire people that “anything is possible” – anyone can lead a happy, successful life.
