IABC Leeds Improvisational Storytelling Event- Speaker Profile

Meet Paul Z Jackson, the master of improvisational storytelling and leading speaker at LUBSxIABC 2018 event.

“Stories feed us, sooth us and help us to remember ourselves and how we share knowledge, journeys and laughter. They happen around fires in homes, in performance. In the moment between one breath and another.

Sometimes, they just happen. People are amazing and it’s the best in us that the Storyteller seeks. As we see how amazing we can each be so our journey becomes clearer and we help others along the way” – this is how Paul Z Jackson defines the power and magic of storytelling.
