Phil Okwedy  is teacher turned performance storyteller who has 16 years of classroom experience in primary education.  He first encountered the efficacy of storytelling as a means to raising attainment in writing. More recently, he has  specialised in using storytelling to facilitate Philosophical enquiry, and has developed a fun interactive approach that makes concepts explicit, allows learners questions to emerge naturally, while getting straight to the heart  of deep and meaningful discussion.
