Story Consulting and Coaching for Business

If you take the time to learn about story, to learn how to distill your own story, and to learn how to enact that story . . . you will have a huge, almost unfair competitive advantage.
— Ty Montague, author of TRUE STORY

Since time immemorial, stories have been our most powerful means of communication. We’ve painted our tales on cave walls and have swapped them around campfires and meeting tables. We continue to spread them with every new tool technology invents. Human beings don't just tell stories, we live them. 

In today’s disruptive environment, narratives shape our businesses and our lives more than ever. We swim in story, all day, every day, making it hard to separate the substance from the noise. As much as we crave meaningful interactions with clients and collaborators, we don’t always know how to forge them. 

We need a partner to help us identify our story and to teach us to enact it in a way that inspires and leads to action.

StoryNova is that partner.

The story behind StoryNova

Why I Launched A Story Consultancy

People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact it’s the other way around.
— Terry Pratchett, Novelist

Hello, I’m Alexis Niki. A New Yorker by birth, I moved overseas for the first time when I was just two years old. In the following decades, I lived in four different countries, learning to navigate and bridge disparate cultures. I turned to writing as a means of making sense of uncertainty and never-ending change.

Because my nomad lifestyle began before the Internet, I pursued what we expats call “portable careers.” I became an Alexander Technique teacher, and also a translator and subtitler for film and television. I continued to write, eventually becoming a screenwriter and a script consultant.

Story and storytelling became the core of my life. My unique background, with its multiple cultural perspectives, gave me an unusual ability to help people tell their stories from their own vantage point. I began working at the convergence of entertainment, technology, entrepreneurship, and independent production, showing a variety of clients how to shape their stories and connect with their audiences.

In the course of it all, I stumbled upon a few core truths:

  • Storytelling is universal and timeless, as urgent and necessary today as it was at the dawn of time.
  • Our narratives about our lives, our businesses, and our society shape our world.
  • The best storytelling demands courage and authenticity.
  • The hardest story to tell is your own. It helps to have an experienced listener guide you.

StoryNova is my consultancy, founded on these vital convictions and dedicated to helping clients master the all-powerful tool of storytelling. I have based StoryNova in Paris, France, but my clients span the globe.
