I’m a storyteller and creative consultant. Whatever the project, whoever the client, I like to shake things up. This year I’m working with everyone from world class organisations such as the BBC through to bold, fast-growing businesses and also individuals. I love that variety and the difference every day brings.
Organisations often hire me because I’m an outsider. I help them step out of their bubble. I work with brands and businesses, telling stories that shine the light on their human side (Storytelling). I’m passionate about firing up people’s work lives; I help business leaders, execs and creatives navigate change in their business or careers, out on the streets of London (Coaching). I love getting audiences fired up. This year's gigs include a guest lecture at The University of East London and a presentation at Inspire London, a one day leadership conference at Google's London HQ (Speaking). I currently teach storytelling at the BBC (Workshops).
How did I get to here? My career has been a rollercoaster of a ride full of twists and turns - sometimes exciting, sometimes hairy, but never boring (watch my Do Lecture “Finding your story, your purpose and your compass”). I am the author of four books on entrepreneurship, I’ve written for the Financial Times and have spoken at events from SXSW in Austin, Texas to Meet The Innovators at The Apple Store in London.
I'm based in London and live by the Thames estuary in Leigh-on-Sea. If you want to know what I’m thinking about, take a look at my posts on Medium and follow me on Twitter. Let’s talk - get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
