Hi, I’m Limor Shiponi, the author of this blog. I wear many hats that for the sake of communication, work and discussion, can be boiled down to: storyteller, musician, marketing expert, mentor & coach, author amd entrepreneur. You’ll usually find me in one of these places:
CEO & Founder @ The Storytelling Comapny Inc.
CSO & Co-Founder @ Just Right Marketing
Developer & Founder @ Leonardo Child
Member @ CAN New Artists Collegium
Mentor @ Inno-Negev Technology Accelerator
I’m a polymath.
Being a Polymath – The Honest Blurb
I was four when I first realized I’m drawn to look at the unseen interconnectedness of things. I was always curious to learn what will help me look closer and be everything I can. So you won’t find the famous ‘focus’ or ‘niche’ on this website. I’m highly focused through many trades and practice multidimensional expression.
Trying to figure out what I sell or what you can buy from me, might be confusing. I have a unique mix of experiences, skills and perspectives that make me up. That’s the way I approach things. That’s the way I show up. I have the willingness and courage to take action without knowing where it’s going to go or end. It matters when looking into complex, subjective, multi-dimensional, conflict-saturated issues. If you’re busy with one of those, I’m inviting you to drop a line.
To my fellowship out there: navigating a “what do you do?” environment needs some guidance. There is little. The Renaissance period is long gone, the world has changed. ‘Leonardo Child’ is a current endeavor, to craft a personal development program for polymaths. The original idea popped out of my mouth at The Conference on World Affairs in 2004. More than ten years later, I’m writing the program in Hebrew. In the meanwhile – I’m happy to hear from any of you that are interested in helping others flourish.
In this space I write mainly about the art of Storytelling. My mission is to help us storytellers discuss our art; hence I call this place ‘Agora’. Whether you are just starting the long voyage or anywhere along the road, you might find here something worth thinking about. My interest is in asking difficult questions to find the most objective answers in what seems to be a very subjective journey.
Obviously, I’m interested in culture which I bring into my work with business organizations mainly as a branding, digital transformation and marketing strategist. What you won’t find here is marketing fluff and populism.
If you’re wondering where to start, take the guided tour.
Limor Shiponi is a professional storyteller and CEO with The Storytelling Company Inc, Israel. While performing and researching her art for over twenty years, she became involved in business practices concerning human interaction and knowledge and is currently the leading social media & content strategist in Israel for tech companies and corporations. At the same time she is highly involved in storytelling as an art form and practice. Her English blog is well known among professionals, being an arena for debate and deep insights about the art.
Her heart’s desire is with music, starting with the piano at the age of five, moving to oboe, early reeds and eventually becoming a practicing orchestra conductor. Her other fields of interest are numerous and she happily crossbreeds knowledge while performing her favorite sport – tackling subjective riddles, seeking and finding deep solutions to complex issues. The less-known facets of her personal interests are – the ability to balance the chalice and the blade, finding inner peace and success as a polymath, and helping our deeply wounded world make peace with the feminine.
Limor is the author of ‘Stories at work’ (Hebrew, 2006).
