About us

Stories aren’t just fun – they’re essential to what makes us human.

Telling the right story can shift attitudes, sell products and swing elections. Whether an organisation succeeds or fails can come down to whether they’re telling the right story, in the right way.

At Catsnake we harness the three truths which make storytelling so powerful:

1. Humans seek out stories
2. Humans enjoy stories
3. Stories define our beliefs and actions

In short, we make audiences care, share and act.

We are The Story Agency that thinks big and gets stuff done. So far we’ve helped the National Trust, the BBC, brands, charities, PR agencies and a 1000-year-old castle get smart with their storytelling. We’ve made issues such as recycling and food labelling into runaway viral campaigns and delivered real impact by helping organisations secure policy and behaviour change.

We know that stories can change the world. Let us help shape yours.
