Who is Raf Stevens?
For over 15 years, Raf has been helping companies and organisations to use authentic stories to connect with themselves and their employees. He has also set up a development programme called ‘Tribes’ (buildingyourtribe.be), working with knowledge and insights from corporate anthropology. He is inspired by stories, myths and fables about leaders all over the world. Stories are not just entertainment to him; he sees them as a crucial part of modern leadership. Marketing manager in his wild years; radio deejay in his youth. And for the past two years, also host of the successful Story Club Podcast, an interview series about leadership. Author of 3 books: ‘No Story, No Fans’, ‘Sterke leiders, sterke verhalen’ (strong leaders, strong stories), and Raak (Bullseye)!
Go and listen to Raf’s views on storytelling. You may think storytelling is vague and only believe in facts and figures, but after listening to Raf, you will understand why storytelling is important and how storytelling can make these facts and figures come alive. Raf will convince you and will unlock the storyteller in you.

Raf Stevens adopts a fascinating approach to share insights on the usefulness of storytelling for every company. In our extremely competitive environment, the most important thing is to attract the attention of your audience. Storytelling can play a crucial role in this!
The presentation by Stevens - during the Performance Session Antwerpen, which was set up for our customers - was fantastic. His spontaneous, honest and critical approach was fully appreciated. The subject matter that Raf presented definitely added value to the general story that we wanted to convey. And finally, his contribution to the debate was very useful and to-the-point.

’Loyalty starts with engaging stories’ - that was the title of our customer event in 2013. And who better to reinforce that story than a born storyteller. Raf did this with expertise, to the great satisfaction of our customers. I would recommend him to everyone.
