About the Event


By teaching about plants, Diego offers to his audience the chance to tap into their personal memories and allow people to experience landscapes individually, building care and connection.

In this webinar, Diego will cover his journey, from farm boy in a little village in Italy, to public speaker, wild food educator and media personality who has worked with some of the best cultural practitioners of Australia.

It’s all in the story, how you tell it and how you make people care. Diego will present aspects of method, context, narrative and structure. You can do it too.

  • How to read your audience and build up improvisational skills that will enable you to adapt your story to any setting, any audience.
  • Posture, projection, mannerism - and how that helps in capturing your audience’s attention.
  • Setting and subject - how that helps ground people into your narrative, and draw them in.
  • The importance of jokes, to keep your audience present.
  • The start, the suspense and the S.T.A.R moment (Something They’ll Always Remember)

Diego believes that people have the great task now to create and narrate new stories that will enable modern society to adapt to the shifting paradigms of climatic change, food security, the widening economic gap between rich and poor and importantly, the crisis of belonging and connection.

Stories shape how we experience our surrounding, where we place value and how we perform empathy. What we say is important. How we say it makes the difference.
