I fire up people, organisations and businesses about their work, helping them develop and grow. 

My own 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”). In 16 years working for myself I’ve been hired by a diverse mix of clients including the BBC, MTV, Benetton and The World Economic Forum. I’ve written for the Financial Times, am the author of four books on entrepreneurship and have spoken at events from SXSW in Austin Texas to Meet The Innovators at The Apple Store in London.

I bring all my strands of knowledge to three services:

  1. Consulting - my “Fuel Up your Business” package helps clients figure out the essence of their business or organisation, capturing what they do and why they do it. Recent clients include Stripe Partners, a global strategy and innovation studio.
  2. Coaching - my unique Fuel coaching programme helps business leaders, executives, entrepreneurs and freelancers find their ‘fuel’, uncovering their unique strengths, passion and purpose to drive them forward. I run all my sessions as ‘walk and talks' around the streets of London.
  3. Storytellingfrom conducting storytelling workshops for BBC journalists to crafting content for brands and businesses, I bring stories to life. This year I was editor-at-large on The Stress Report, a publication from The Do Lectures. 

This year's speaking gigs range from a guest lecture at The University of East London to the opening keynote at the Snap Photography Festival in Wales.

I'm based in London and live by the Thames estuary in Leigh-on-Sea. I work with clients of all shapes and sizes, on both sides of the Atlantic. You can check out my stories on Medium and follow me on Twitter. Let’s talk - get in touch: hello@iansanders.com.
