„Toms Kosmos des Storytelling ist mir schon lange bekannt und es war eine Freude zu erleben, wie er seinem Tun treu geblieben ist – und damit wundervolle Gedanken freisetzen kann für die eigene Schreibe der Teilnehmer. Natürlich ist es eine ‚Theorie‘ unter anderen, aber mir persönlich gefällt dieses konsequente Nachspüren der Inhalte, was man eigentlich erzählen will, durch die ‚psychologischen Instrumentarien‘ des Erzählers am allerbesten. Außerdem ist Toms unerschütterlicher Optimismus, dass ein echter Storyteller tun muss, was er tun muss, ohne sich verbiegen zu lassen, seit Jahren mein leuchtendes Vorbild, mich für Geschichten zu öffnen, die mir nicht diktiert werden, sondern die sich gerade deswegen von mir finden lassen wollen.“

*****Georg L., Deutschland*****
