Limor Shiponi was born in Israel and raised in London as the daughter of a diplomat, giving her an early peek into the heart of human motivation. Striving to understand what makes people do what they do is the center of everything with which she is involved.
Shiponi is a professional storyteller, coach and emcee at different venues around Israel and abroad. Her own experience with the complexity of bilingualism and multiculturalism eventually evolved into her ability to connect diversities. This ability has won her a leading position in the modern Israeli storytelling scene. She is also a member of the American National Storytelling Network.
As a musician, Shiponi directs the orchestra in Rishon LeZion and the Zichron-Ya'akov Concert Youth Band. She is a member and program writer for the award-winning Duo Renaissance ensemble, performing Early Music. She is the author of a book in progress, The Musical Score of Modern Storytelling, a new methodology implying frameworks of music syntax into the world of storytelling.
Close attention made Shiponi notice the weaker and missing voices. She became a youth mentor focusing on the areas of character development. She initated a new Israeli enterprise in formation, Storytellers for Community Development and Peacemaking, and is a member of the Interfaith Encounter Association. She also does independent organizational and business consulting.
Shiponi is a single mother of three beautiful daughters.
