It was the evening of June the 7th 2018. Around 100 people were gathered in the basement room of LEAF in Manchester City centre. They came to hear 7 Stories. Stories from successful people who have overcome major setbacks. Stories that inspired the audience to keep going in the face of adversity and make their mental health the utmost priority. Stories that are at the heart of what we do as a company.
“7 Stories is based on the principle that as human beings we love stories. Wrap any message you like in an engaging story and people will remember you, the story you told and the point behind it. It’s something we focus on very heavily in our work at Buffalo 7 and it’s why we created this event,” said Lyndon Nicholson, CEO.
This night wasn’t about selling us, or selling them. This night wasn’t about showing off presentation design or funky animations. It was about the people and what they had to say. The night belonged to the people who volunteered to share their personal stories with us, so that we could learn from their experiences. They were the stars of the night and boy (or girl) did they deliver.
For those of you who weren’t there or those of you who were there and wanna relive some of the highlights, these attendees have written reviews of the event:
