"I found more value in one single conversation with her than in five full-hour conversations with most." - Peter Jansen, Leadermaker

It felt like I was in the room with both of you — one of the biggest things that any form of technology can achieve." —Vinesh Sukumaran, Positive Psycologist

A Story of Impact


"I had the great privilege of meeting Madelyn Blair a few weeks ago. A deeply inspiring, personal chat that will resonate for a long time. She told me about the concept of the
'future story.'"

"Since leaving my last job & home, I'd had a recurring dream of a blindfolded woman flanked by swords, unable to walk forward because she couldn't see the way out. Since my conversation with Madelyn, I’ve pursued my future."

"I learned that writing yourself into your future, through story, gives you back your purpose and your power to succeed."

"Most importantly I never had the dream again."

-Becky Danicic, London
