Headshot of Sarah Hutt
 

Hi. I’m Sarah Hutt. I’ve been producing and directing documentaries and writing books for more than a decade. In that time I’ve come to see story as more than a way to inform or entertain, it’s actually a powerful design tool.

I've seen the power of story help students learn and improve their academic outcomes. I've seen how storytelling helps audiences understand a problem and take action. Let me help you find your story and make a positive impact.

Let me share what I know about story telling for impact, understanding audience, the art of the interview, or finding your purpose through story with your students or team.
