Murray Nossel, Ph.D.,
Co-founder and Director of Narativ
Murray Nossel co-founded Narativ with Dr. Paul Browde in 2000. Their mission was to humanize business communication through the power of listening and telling. Nossel has taught storytelling for 25 years in more than 50 countries to more than 10,000 people. He believes unequivocally that we all have a personal story to tell. We simply need a method to excavate, craft and present that story. Nossel is the author of Powered by Storytelling: Excavate, Craft, and Present Stories to Transform Business Communication.
Signature Stories for Executives
Nossel works one-on-one with executives to create a signature story. This is a story he or she can use especially during mission-critical moments, such as when strategy shifts, during an internal reorganization, or to support PR efforts.
Keynotes and Workshops
Murray presents his 7-step method along with essential storytelling principles in keynotes or team workshops. Participants will gain insight into the reciprocal relationship of listening and telling, develop the outline of their own personal story, and experience the skill of presentation.
Nossel has applied his listening and storytelling methodology in the theater and documentary filmmaking. Two Men Talking, a performance of his listening and storytelling method developed with Dr. Paul Browde, has been performed in the West End of London and Off-Broadway in New York City. His film, “Why Can’t We Be a Family Again?”, about African American brothers in Brooklyn struggling to reunite with their mother, a recovering drug addict, was nominated for a 2002 Academy Award®.
Nossel is currently producing and directing “Sala” a documentary film about a Nazi Holocaust survivor who resolutely chose not to tell her story until age promoted her to speak. He is the founder and director of the World Mother Storytelling Project.
